This has got to be one of the greatest surprises I have received today!
Recently, I was invited by Digital Arts: California (http://www.digitalartscalifornia.com) to participate in their upcoming exhibit titled "True Colors," I never hesitated on joining, tried my luck, and was very impressed by the jaw-dropping entries that has been sent, including those previous exhibit entries.
And just a few hours ago, I received an email from Digital Arts: California with news that I have been awarded a STELLAR ART AWARD. I am really dumbfounded and was not expecting this at all.
Thank you so much to Digital Arts: California for this wonderful opportunity. My personal thanks also goes to Bill Kowalsky and Ginny Christensen. I am very much honored and humbled. Also to the Blender Community who have been very supportive all the way, a huge salute to you!
