In January, Lake Travis Life asked me to photograph this artist in her home studio for the article "Lakeway's Janet Sopp-Sims Gets to the Art of the Matter." It's now the cover story of LT Life's March issue.

A native of Kettering, OH, Janet and her husband, Eric, are now Lakeway residents. Janet attended Columbus College of Art and Design and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in sculpture and painting and a minor in graphic art.

Artistic talent runs in her family but Janet is soaring to new heights of acclaim. Janet was recently recognized for her work with membership in the National Association of Women Artists in November and the Artists of Texas in December, 2012. The National Association of Women Artists, founded in 1889, is the oldest professional women's art organization in the country.

The day of the shoot, she was working on a piece for the Derwent Pencils contest in the UK. She loves the shapes of wine glasses and likes " the deep, rich red color that some wines have, especially the big, bold, spicy ones."

"Well, ... Well" pictured here is Janet's entry for the 2013 Hunting Art Prize. Established in 1981 the Hunting Art Prize is the most generous annual award in North America for painting and drawing. The winner will be announced at the Hunting Art Prize gala on May 4, 2013 and receive the $50,000 prize.
