Dianne da Silva wins the July People's Choice Award
Dianne da Silva was announced as the winner of the People's Coice Award for July at the Opening Reception for the August Exhibition. The piece, titled "Seafaring Son", was painted during a visit from her son who is usually traveling the open seas. Dianne saw a different side of her son during this visit... a rough and tumble sailor on the outside but with a tender, caring heart inside. She set out to capture that in her portrait and our July voters obviously agreed.
