My painting "Coke Carrier" exhibited in the 32nd Annual Northern National Art Competition and won top prize, an Award of Excellence - outstanding for a little 12" x 12" piece! Then, later this month, "Drinking Happy Bird" picked up 3rd Place in 41st Annual Whitewater Valley Art Competition.
Finally, the most exciting news, Kate and I are officially land owners! We bought 1.5 acres in Homer Glen, IL, a southwest suburb of Chicago. It's a heavily wooded corner lot in a unique 3 home cul-de-sac; soon to be 4. We are beyond excited to start building our dream home.
