"I received MASTER PASTELIST from the Pastel Society of America after winning an award in the 2021 Enduring Brillance Exhibit. This beautiful exhibit can be seen at https://www.pastelsocietyofamerica.org. "Prismatic Aura" is shown above. Thank you to the juror of awards, Emily A. Beeny, PhD, Curator in Charge of European Paintings, Fine Arts Museum of San Franscisco and thank you to everyone who works so hard to make the show possible. Who would have ever thought? I am so proud to join many pastelists whom I admire in this distinction."
