This past week I learned that Fog Lifting has been awarded a Featured Artist Award and included as one of 50 artworks in an international juried competition presented by Manhattan Arts International. Celebrate the Healing Power of Art 2014 runs online from May 17 - July 17, 2014.

The guest juror is Lilly Wei, a New York-based art critic, writer and independent curator focusing on contemporary art. She's a contributor to many art publications including Art In America since 1984 and Art News.

I am also included in an article written by  Renée Phillips, an internationally known author and arts writer, published on the Manhattan Arts International blog: Four Artists Who Express Tranquility, which can be read in full here:  http://www.manhattanartsblog.com/artists-express-tranquility/

"We used to walk up in the sky 
Up where the air is rarefied 
Went hand-in-hand from cloud to cloud...."
