I'm super excited about something though--over the weekend I entered one of my paintings in a local show. It's a juried show which means a panel of judges looks at all the work and choose who's right for the show.
I was doubtful when I got there to sign in because there was just a sea of paintings entered and I had no clue what kind of chance I had. Plus, I wasn't crazy about the piece I was submitting--it's alright but I have better--the problem is that it had to be framed and ready to hang and this was the only one that fit the bill.
So I dropped it off Saturday morning and got a call later that day telling me that it was accepted! I'm SO excited!
Also, turns out there were over 200 pieces submitted and they chose 45 to be in the show. That's not too shabby.
There will be an opening reception on Friday night and I'm looking forward to taking the kids to it. And the really extra-exciting thing is that they will be giving out awards and cash prizes plus offering some people solo shows!! I'm not holding my breath on that at all--but still!
This is the piece I entered--it's a watercolor called "Room Service":
I would say it looks better in person because it has zillions of layers and the colors kind of glow in a cool way.
