1st Place Award!
I am truly honoured! I just read on Facebook that my painting won First Place in the FCA Toronto, Spring Thaw Exhibition! When I submit to shows, I never think in terms of awards because for me it's all about the artwork and the excitement of exhibiting. However, when they come along, I'm truly humbled and grateful.
This is extra meaningful to me because I paint things that I love and this sliver belonged to my great grandparents, then passed along to my grandmother and then my mom. I often wonder about my ancestors and how their faces must have also reflected in it when using it and that's heart warming to think about!
Congratulations to all the winners and artists on a great show and a special thanks to FCA Toronto, judges and volunteers.
