Scholarship News!!

Been having some luck lately! In late March I was notified by Oil Painters Of America that I'm the recipient of their Shirl Smithson Scholarship for 2008. I believe they hand out four per year. The scholarship is good for up to $500. I'll be using the scholarship to attend a 3 day portrait workshop by Jeff Watts in late June in Encinitas, CA at Watts Atelier. It's been a while since I've had instruction from Jeff and I'm very excited to attend this workshop.
Also....
Last week I was awarded a scholarship from the Scottsdale Artists' School. The scholarship is good for one workshop. I'll be attending a studio landscape painting workshop with Matt Smith, one of my favorite landscape painters. This 3 day workshop is in late April, and of course will be in Scottsdale, AZ.
Wooohooo!
