I was honored to receive the Irvine Museum Award for my painting "Cypress and Fog, Point Lobos". Given by Jean Stern, the Director of the Irvine Museum, this award was given to painting in the show that best represents the traditional California impressionist collection of the Irvine Museum.
Here is a photo of the field study that was the inspiration for the larger work in the show.
