This work is another painting based on aerial imagery. It depicts the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Ellington Street in Southeast Raleigh. I created the work by combining two 8x10-inch canvases into one 10x16-inch panoramic image and then framing them as one painting. This piece was accepted into the Visual Art Exchange's "SCOPE: The NC Landscape" exhibit this month, and received an Honorable Mention from juror Allison Slaby.
"Ellington and King." Oil on two stretched 8x10-inch canvases, equaling 10 x 16 inches. Completed April 2012.

I had more good news earlier this month when one of my entries in the Visual Art Exchange's SCOPE: The North Carolina Landscape exhibit, "Grissom and Talmage," was awarded the Kathy Brancato Memorial Award for First Place in the show. This is a special honor for me, as Kathy and I had exhibited together in the Miriam Preston Block Gallery in 2010 shortly before she passed away. The Brancato family has sponsored this award in her memory, and I am very grateful to them for their support.
