People's Choice Award 2016
  "Morning Reflections" by Dan Bulleit

I am so excited and so honored to have been chosen to even be in the show. This is a huge bonus that means so much to me as a validation in what I am trying to accomplish with the support of my family.

The subject was from the Cascade Cafe, a place we visited several times in NY on vacation a few years ago. It is run by an immigrant family who was very proud to own this cafe in America. It’s a story that demonstrates the dream and opportunity of America coming true. I believe at least some of them were originally from Pakistan. No matter the time of day, it seemed this same staff was there with the same smiles happy to serve. This scene was shot at about 6:30 am and the light was just coming up. This cook paused briefly as he stared out the window. With all the reflective glass and with him looking out it seemed that that common element was “reflection”. Thus the title. “Morning Reflections.” As luck would have it, my brother was in NY just a few weeks ago and showed them a photo of the painting and they were very excited by it.

SO it all comes full circle, it was accepted in the respected 38th Indiana Heritage Arts Show, it put a smile on the face of the staff at Cascade Cafe, it sold to an excellent collector on opening night and then won the People’s Choice Award. This was a big success for me. Thank you!
