I have to admit that is somewhat surreal to see my name in print since I have some December issues of the Artist's magazine that dates back to 1992. Thanks to everyone of you for stopping by and leaving a comment!

Alvin!

Duh!

How could this brilliant piece NOT be a finalist?

I can't imagine what the competition looks like if they're up against your work.
