As this week, with its last few days of September gets underway, I read with joy this morning, of last night's opening of the 31st Annual International Marine Art Exhibition at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport. My work, On the Point, garnered, for the second year in a row and for the sixth time over the last couple of decades, the Marine Environmental Wildlife Award. I thank the judges and am most honored to have had my work singled out among those of many other fine works in the exhibition, for this award. And, best of all, the work was one of 15 pieces that sold at the opening! Not a bad way to begin a work week.
