Palma freshman Ramon Guzman entered his painting, “Under the Sea,” in the juried high school art exhibition, Thinking Out Loud, held at the Carl Cherry Center in Carmel. His painting was purchased by Amy Essick, the art curator for the CHOMP Foundation. Of the 77 pieces of art on display during the exhibition only five pieces were sold. Not only was Ramon’s one of the five, his sold for the highest price. That makes Ramon a “professional” artist.
