TAG California Open Exhibition

Great news! I learned yesterday that my painting "Sounds of the Sea" won First Place and $500 in the TAG California Open Exhibition in Santa Monica, California. My friends Perry and Kathy Anderson accepted the award on my behalf at last night's reception. They reported that close to 1,000 people appeared at the gallery during the 3 hours they were there. I do wish I'd flown across the country to attend my own party! Ah...next time.

My husband's title for this scene of a woman listening to the ocean is "Girl on her Shell-Phone".

  1. It's a magical painting. Congratulations!

  2. It's fabulous! CONGRATULATIONS! ps: I love your husband's working title...

  3. This is amazing, heroic and iconic

  4. Very beautiful, I like the girls relaxed atitude and the light atmosphere.
    You are a great painter.

  5. Congratulations!!! This painting has a great sense of style and design. I especially like how you juxtaposed straight lines (window, table, rug) with the curvaceousness of the models. The well thought out design emphasizes their gracefulness. A truly beautiful and sophisticated work of art!

  6. wow, congratulations on winning first prize! Super painting you deserve it.

  7. Congratulations! It is a fantastic painting! (Isn't it interesting how at home or in the studio paintings get referred to by playful private titles before they go out in the world sporting their 'proper" names - your husband's title works wonderfully.)

  8. Hi Marie

    Just browsing your gallery. Noticed this painting again. Would you be willing to consign it to us. I would love the opportunity to show this.


  9. Marie,
    I just realized that I am not getting your updates and that's why I haven't seen all the fantastic work you've been doing.
    Your award is well deserved! These figure paintings are alive with color, movement and intrigue!!


Thanks for commenting on my art! Marie
