And that's not all! I entered the Light Space & Time
Online Gallery's Figurative Competition for June, only
my second time ever entering an art competition and I
won a place in the Special Merit Award Category!!!
" Special Merit Award Category – These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category. Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tiers. "
It's very special to me that it was my "Fresh Catch"
painting of our Mazatlan shrimp seller who, sadly, passed
away just about the same time that I finished the painting.
**WARNING** it's a "figurative" exhibit...so.....
If you wish to miss the nudes (which are lovely), my painting appears at 3:38 time signature (insert crazy face emoji)
Speaking of emojis...if I was one I would be a Happy Dance because I feel like a kid at Christmas with all these delightful gifts pouring down on me!! And now I am truly painting up a storm so as to have many new treasures to bring to the upcoming shows.
Thank you SO MUCH for your love, support and for reading my crazy blog!!!
