As I shared in my latest email newsletter, I was voted the “Best Artist in Ojai” in the Ojai Valley News Best of the Ojai Valley 2012 Competition.
Tonight we attended a celebration for the award winners and enjoyed meeting others in the community while sampling some of the delicious food supplied by the winners in the restaurant categories.
It was such a special honor to be chosen for this award, especially since we moved to Ojai and opened the gallery just last year. There are many great artists in the Ojai Valley, most of whom have been working here much longer than I have, so I am quite surprised to be chosen. Thanks to all of you who voted for me — I’ll proudly display the award in the window of my gallery.
