I am very honored to be featured on the cover of the 6th volume of Manifest Gallery's International Painting Annual. Manifest always puts together a high quality publication full of artists that I'm amazed by, and it feels surreal to be included with them, let alone to be featured so prominently. On the night I found out, I was checking emails on my phone before turning in when I scrolled down through an email from Manifest and saw an image my painting. It took several seconds of processing for my brain to comprehend why I was suddenly looking at my own artwork. Anyway, more information, such as other artists and options for purchasing the book, can be found at Manifest's website.
"For the INPA 6 Manifest received 1536 submissions from 480 artists in 45 states, Washington D.C., and 31 countries. Entries represented works made from 2012 through mid-2015.

Eleven professional and academic advisors qualified in the fields of art, design, criticism, and art history juried the sixth International Painting Annual. The process of selection was by anonymous blind jury, with each jury member assigning a quality rating for artistic merit to each work submitted. The entries receiving the highest average combined score are included in this publication.
