Recently my father (Bernie Sr.) and I both entered paintings in the 51st Annual Onslow Art Society Spring Show. Dad painted when I was a kid but has recently taken up the challenge again. Here's a photo of us at the opening. The show runs at the Council for the Arts through April.
I was fortunate enough to be awarded the "Onslow County Artist Award" due to the painting "Blue Ridge Autumn" pictured below. A good friend of mine purchased the painting... thanks Karen.
