California Senate selects "Bird in Paradise" for high honor
State Senator John J. Benoit, R-Bermuda Dunes selected my “Bird in Paradise” watercolor for inclusion in the Senate’s Ninth Annual California Contemporary Art Collection exhibit. This high state honor will allow my artwork to be showcased in the Maddy Lounge in the state Capitol through September 2010. "Bird in Paradise" was the poster art for the 2009 Indian Wells Arts Festival. To say the least, I am thrilled and honored.
