Tonight I checked my email after a long day and saw that the Yeiser Art Center had sent out the notice of awards on the final day of the exhibition. I’d had a piece accepted for the show and was pleased because it was one I hadn’t shown before and they’d picked it over some of my more popular pieces.
Can you imagine my surprise when THIS is what I saw…
This is my FIRST first place.
I’m still a bit stunned.
At risk of being a little over-the-top I think this is a good moment to give thanks.
Thank you to those who have encouraged me.
Thank you to those who have supported me.
Thank you to those who have worked with me; I couldn’t do the work I do without you giving of yourselves and your time.
A special thank you to Jock; I would not be doing this work without your initial and ongoing guidance and friendship.
I am grateful to be able to use these God-given talents for myself and those who enjoy my work.
