Hi Everyone, Thought I would share some exciting news with you all! A few months back I submitted some of my paintings for a contest in Ontario by Hillebrand Winery for Artists living in Ontario. The results were published last week and I am so happy to announce that my Colourful Regatta painting made the 2009 Vintage Label Contest - Short List of 37 artists out of a total 1,300+ submissions for the Hillebrand Winery Artist Series!

Wish me luck that my painting is produced on one of the bottle labels! I should find out the results some time mid December.
