There was a great turnout at the President's gallery at Santa Fe college for the 2012 Florida Artists Juried Exhibition last night on Friday the 13th, I met and chatted with some very interesting people, and...... my painting won an award. How honored am I with all the incredible artwork from artists across the state on display. I am one lucky artist.
