Why I spend a night and a day before the judging being miserable waiting for results is beyond me,
my two watercolor/ink paintings did NOT make it into the juried art show, ...however,
one judge of the three liked one of them and another judge like the other.
So it was nice to know they each got a vote!
Just not enough to get into the show.
AND NOW FOR THE VERY GOOD NEWS:
I was and am OVER THE MOON pleased to see that my Textile Art Quilts did much better!!!
got three out of three votes from the judges and will be in the show.
As will a second small art quilt called "African Soul", which I can not seem to find a photo of, but am pretty sure I took her picture. You'll have to wait to see her when I go to the show myself next month. All three judges voted her in!
And last but certainly not least, in the photography catagory my photograph on canvas
"Local Loving Couple"
also got three out of three judges votes and will also be in the show!!!
I have entered this juried art show every year
I am proud to say I got something into each show I entered. Always more than one.
I always enter several pieces thinking the more I enter the better my chances; but I have witnessed
the judging and also know that many very good pieces of art are rejected each year too.
So I always hold my breath thinking this could be the year I don't make it.
I'm glad I got to be pleasantly surprised again this year
with three of my five pieces being accepted!
And now I will take a humble bow and say thank you judges all!
