This photograph from my Ladies of the Lake Series was just awarded a third place ribbon in the "Visions of Southern Illinois" Art Exhibit, 2014.
It was taken in August, 2014, at Cedar Lake in the Shawnee National Forest, just after sunrise.
I am honored and grateful to have received this award. It encourages me to keep pursuing my vision, to keep following my heart. To sweeten the honor even more, there are multiple people interested in buying this photograph (printed versions of all of my photographs are available for purchase. I have a professional printer that accommodates 13" x 19" paper, and I use archival ink and papers in my printing. These prints have an amazing depth of color!).
And, most of all, I'm extremely grateful to all of you lovely readers who take time out of your busy lives to read these posts and offer me your on-going support and encouragement.
Until next time...
