Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today welcomed Cleveland, Okla. native, Jessica Reeves to his Washington, D.C. office to recognize her as the 2012 Congressional Art Competition winner from Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District.

“It is an honor to welcome Jessica to Washington to name her as this year’s Congressional Art Competition winner from the Third District,” said Lucas. “This art contest gives students like Jessica the opportunity to display their artwork to thousands of visitors who visit the capitol each year, and her painting reflects what talented students we have in Oklahoma. I encourage her to continue pursuing her interest in art and wish her the best of luck in the future.”

Reeves recently finished the 7th grade at Cleveland Middle School. Her oil painting entitled, “Splash of Color” was inspired by the picture of a morph into the future. Points of interest are the abstract lines and multi colors, which represents peacock feathers with the spots and outlines of the spots. Reeves’ painting will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year.

Reeves is the daughter of Dan and Holly Reeves of Cleveland, Okla.
