Only around birthday time or Christmas wrap presents may arrive via the mail.  The other day a rough looking packing box was on my doorstep.  The return address had the ISAP listed - The International Society of Acrylic Painters.  I was expecting an envelope.

It is always a treat to get a present!  Opening it up revealed even more boxes.  This is my award for my painting Circling Below I in the 18th Annual ISAP Open International Exhibition currently on view in Paso Robles, CA.  

The real treat is receiving 27 - 2 oz tubes of various colors of M Graham & Co acrylics!  My painting in the show only had 3 acrylic colors plus black Indian ink.  With this bonanza I am excited to play with all these rich colors.  Many thanks to the juror and to M Graham & Company for their generous award!


  1. Congratulations on your nice award! I love the painting that won the award also!
