I received a wonderful phone call, today. Four days before the deadline I created a design for the Wolf Conservation Stamp Contest. We overnighted the drawing so it would arrive before the deadline. Today, I received a phone call from The New Mexico Wildlife Alliance stating that they had picked my drawing for the winning art for this contest. I am so thankful and grateful to have my work chosen:) It will be announced soon. The website is www.nmwild.org.
I never thought my work would be chosen and I almost backed out before I sent it off. Lesson: you just never know and you have to keep trying.
