Showing Up. And Luck
Please comment! I'd like to have conversations with readers, like minded or not -- rather than sparring matches with Facebook Friends.
Anyway: A nearby town has a big todo for July 4th every year, including a judged art show. I entered once a couple of years ago and actually won ribbons on two(!) paintings.
This year, I had more paintings to chose from, but kind of didn't make a big deal about it in my mind. I was participating to support my colleagues, cohorts and friends.
But I got a call tonight that I've won an award. It will be given at an artist's reception Saturday (which I don't think I can attend because my kids and grandkids are coming to our place for an actual family picnic!!!)
I like each of the three paintings I submitted, but they are SO different in my mind: They reflect varying goals, moods, techniques and instruction. I can hardly wait to see what won what.
