First Place Award for the Showcase Exhibit November 02 2014, 0 Comments

Last night was the opening reception for the Hidden in the Hills Showcase.  

I strolled through the show, sipping lemon water, meeting the guests and artists and enjoying the autumn Sonoran Desert air - let in by the doors open to the terrace.  It's a good feeling to get out from the studio and enjoy what other artists are creating.

The guests were called to attention by the Town Mayor, Vincent Francia, who opens with a lovely nod to the arts and proceeds to call the winners of the show.  He calls my name for First Place.  

So I won an award.  The biggest one for the exhibit - and I almost didn't enter the show.  

It's easy to let opportunities go by.  This season, I stated that I would say "yes" to opportunities and do the work to engage in them.  I'm grateful that this opportunity said yes back.

 

Two paintings in the show: Effervesce and Dungarees
