Janice’s painting “An Elephant in the Room” received a Merit Award at the Venice Art Center in Florida. The juried art exhibition is entitled “Out of Place; Unusual Things in Ordinary Spaces”

As the Opening Reception was on Inauguration Day. Janice said, “This painting was her contribution to this weekend’s political activism. The reference to The Republican elephant is deliberate—the huge, scary, male elephant is crashing into the “retro-looking, ordinary living room. Maybe I should have made him larger!”.
