I went down to the museum this morning to see the art on the wall :) It was SO surreal!
As I paid to get into the museum, I could look into the room and see my art on the wall! Talk about wild!! There was some VERY nice art in the exhibit! I was honored to be a part of it.
I did see that the "Letters home" collage won the Award. Its a $25 gift card to Dick Blick. Not bad! I am excited just to have won something :) And, my Crow collage (named him "Oh the Places You'll Go" had a Purchase award! Yes! Someone bought him!! I was there , staring at my pieces on the wall in disbelief. I felt sort of numb.........it was so surreal! The lady there, still putting out sold tags, etc) asked if I knew the artist. I said "Yes." A minute later I piped up that it was me :) She came over and asked me to show her my pieces........so I did, showing her the crow last as it was a few paintings down from my other two. She excitedly said "Thats MINE!!!! I bought him!!" I tell you, I have NEVER sold any of my work before. It was more exciting to know, that I created that, and to see how excited the buyer was. I can't even describe it. Its an amazing feeling. The lady who purchased it is a part of the Art Association that is the sponsor of this event.
Now I am feeling like I am coming down with something. I feel SO icky :( I have to sort of stay low, so I can be up to going to the Reception thingy on Sunday-I can't miss that!!
Tomorrow is my son's birthday too, so he is having some friends over. I gotta be well for that too!
