"Red Scarf" in Human Figures Exhibition: Award of Excellence


One of my flamenco paintings, "The Red Scarf", was juried into the Human Figures 2011 exhibition in The Federation of Canadian Artists.  It was further honoured with an Award of Excellence. This painting was inspired by my flamenco dance instructor, the talented and beautiful Karen Pitkethly of the Karen Flamenco Dance Company and School.
