I gotta start posing better for these photos. I'll have to practice in front of a mirror. Chest out, shoulders back, big smile. I have to buy myself some gallery event clothes, too. I should get a good jacket. Maybe one for the summer and one for winter. I'll wear one of those with the same shirt and pants to every gallery event. Like Steve Jobs, I'll just have a uniform. That will be so much easier. And, I'll wear the medal to every event from now on.
So, this photo was taken on Sunday at the Greenhouse Gallery where I won the Artist of the Year award for the Coppini Academy of Fine Arts! Awesome! It was quite an honor and a proud day for me. I'm now requesting that my students address me as "Artist of the Year, Danny Grant". Thanks to Myra Knapp, who did a great job organizing the show. And, thanks to Ron Rencher for judging. It was a fun event. I had a good time getting to talk to the other Coppini artists, and see some great art on the walls.
