Lately I've been finding that the shows, jobs, etc that I apply for and then seem to forget about always come back to surprise me! I applied to the Washington Post's art competition Real Art DC back in late April/May during my theory class and thought nothing of it. I had been emailed a few times by a reporter asking for more images and thought, "Well that's interesting" but then lost touch. I recently got an email from the same reporter asking me if I would like to be a finalist--and I said yes of course! Here's how it works-- anyone can upload photos of their artwork onto the Real Art DC page. Right now there are almost 3000 images from artists. 10 finalists are selected and featured by the Post. Once all 10 have been selected, there's a 2 week voting period where you can vote for your favorite. The winner is then further featured on the website and I think in the printed paper as well. I'm surprised to be chosen, especially out of so many images and very honored. Thanks Washington Post! I'll post a link to the story once it's published.

My website is up and running! I still need to add more photos but everything's looking pretty good so far and I'm happy with it. I'm going to keep using the blog to announce updates, shows, etc but will primarily add pictures of new work only to the website. The address is:

Sorry it's been awhile since my last post! Between looking for a job, trying to spend time in the studio, getting ready for 2 more shows, and setting up a "real" website, it's been hard to find time to update this thing. But YES I will have a real website soon, just have to take some better images of my paintings and then things will be up and running. I have a few things to post but first I need to go to the studio! Look out for things to come...
