I’m very happy to say that my artwork Similar Features (11) has won The Canson Paper Award for Excellence Recognition in the Colored Pencil Society of America Explore This 9! Show.
Out of 298 entries, 53 were selected to appear in the exhibition. Thirteen of those entries were selected as award winners. I’m very honored to have won this award and being one of them!
