Painting to Join the Umpqua Community College Permanent Collection

In early December, I responded to a "Call to Artists" from Umpqua Community College.
The Umpqua Community College Art Collection seeks to add to its permanent art collection through the acquisition of contemporary and modern art that recognizes the artistic talent of artists in the Pacific Northwest. The artwork will be placed in College buildings for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public. 

I sent off several images of paintings and prepared myself for the waiting game that comes with all art entries.

Yesterday, I was honored and delighted to hear that they are purchasing my painting "Catch, No Release."
