Yellow Sky painting by DB (Left) For the first time in my artistic life, in October 2014, I had the thrill and privilege of exhibiting a painting—a mixed media work in oil pastel and watercolor, "Golden Sky"—in the 16th Annual Collage, Digital & Mixed Media Juried Online International Art Exhibition, produced by Upstream People Gallery.
(Below) I am proud of representing the Terrain Gallery's 2011 exhibition "This Great, Diverse City—How Should We See It?" in their ad and in the Journal of the Print World. Click here to read Carrie Wilson's review.
