I’m proud to have won Third Place in the latest SoMMA exhibition “Tiny Treasures” at Reddi Arts in Jacksonville. As the name implies the entries were all small pieces under 16×20. It was kind of ironic that they decided to do a small works show. A couple of months ago I decided I wasn’t going to do much small work anymore. That decision was brought about, because I had too much of it on my walls and most of the art groups I belong to require work to be at least 11×14. At least some of the small pieces finally go off the wall and out into public view! And this one: “Don’t Be So Negative” got the award. The reason for the title? I was purposely work with the negative space in the piece and making sure that one was the focal point.
