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
