The primary attraction in the composition when I decided to paint this was the shadow in the foreground, more than anything else.

My other bit of news is that I received another phone call earlier today from the Marblehead Festival of Arts and found out I also won the Edward D. Carey award, for my watercolor painting. In the over 20 years that I have been visiting and participating in this summer art festival, there has never been an award that I have respected and admired more than this. I am so thrilled and encouraged, and I had to share the news.
To read about the summer art festival and the award I am receiving, you can visit the festival website:
