Oil Pastel Society "Transcendence" International show award.

Yesterday evening I received e-mail from Oil pastel Society starting that my painting "Koi Pond" was awarded second place at Professional/Signature category on annual members only OPS International show.
 It is a huge honor, way more that I expected. I'm thrilled and totally happy.
