Online Gallery "Light, Space, and Time" features a January 2012 art exhibition called Seascapes in which my oil painting "Rounding the Mark" received special recognition, despite heavy competition from many traditional watercolors. The first-place painting exemplified the true meaning of the word watercolor. Transparent kitsch! My painting "My Father's Ashes" (shown here) wasn't even recognized, while "Rounding the Mark" placed 4th of 90, which leads me to believe the gallery operates on an "elegance first" prejudice. Anything thought provoking is buried at sea.
