I was honored and excited to learn this week that my painting, From the Heart - Sunflowers, received third place in the overall competition for the 55th Annual Irving Arts Association juried show. This is only my second professional art award, (I'm not counting the magnet I won in first grade for the drawing of an apple). The judge said that I had shown "good tenebristic values". I had to look it up! It was a good lesson for me and a reminder I need to keep studying the science of the craft I love, and not just practice it.

I can't leave you this evening without revealing Howie's true love, the girl next door, Sweet Pea. We recently had our fence fixed so they can no longer kiss noses through the holes in the wooden gate like they used to.
