(News from Haiti follows.)
While the universal quality of our 2010 Masterworks entries was "over the top," two artists reigned supreme. For the second year in a row, Canadian Michael Dumas PEOPLE'S CHOICE winner was ... this year with "Curious Tiger Cub." Michael, we congratulate you and thank you for your excellent entry. The proud owner of your painting is a collector from California.
The Buyers' Choice Award, in a close competition, was Rebecca Latham. She had the most "intents to purchase" filed for her entry, "Gray Ghost." Her painting was "won" by Ohio art collectors. Mrs. Collector is a fine artist in her own right!
An interesting note: runner up for Buyers' Choice was Rebecca's sister, Bonnie Latham.
Congratulations for Michael and Rebecca. In four to six weeks, you'll receive a trophy from Gallery One along with our since thanks for your fine works.
Phuoc Le (MD - MPH) is back in Haiti after a two-week "required" return to the US. Good news (for us at least) is that he is now residing inside Port au Prince's General Hospital. He was in a tent which occasionally was "under water." Click here to view a video of Phuoc at work. (A reminder: Phuoc is married to our #1 granddaughter, Erin.)
That's all for now.
