This was a nice little surprise. I found out this morning that I have been awarded the Evelyn and Peter Haller Distinguished Young Artist Award from The Society of Animal Artists. Evelyn and Peter Haller were notable sculptors and longtime members of the Society. The Haller award is an award sponsored by the Hallers' friends Isabel and Sheldon Sklar.
Thank you to the Society. I will try my best to continue to be distinguished and I will certainly try to stay young.
