EVERGLADES National Park Artist-in-Residence

Today I received a call telling me that I was chosen to be an artist-in-residence at the EVERGLADES National Park in Florida.

This is a national competition that I entered almost a year ago ... and really wanted to be included.

I am thrilled to be spending a month there this summer!

I have to be able to spend May or June there -- and am currently checking my schedule to see if it fits.

Wow... great new imagery to go with my series on the northern Everglades [sugar farm country] from 15 years ago.

whoo hoo!
