Well just got back from the art reception at the North Port Art Center where they are holding their Idols and Icon Show. I entered three of my pieces to the Juried show and to my surprise I recieve FIRST PLACE for Jim Morrison and to my surprise and amazement I received BEST OF SHOW for my Color Pencil drawing of Sir Paul McCartney
this was the first time I ever placed in the top 3 and never thought that I would ever recieve a best in show…gosh I think the last time I won an award like this was back in High School and that was 26 years ago LOL
well maybe this is just the beginning for me I never thought my art work would ever get this kind of recognition but I am extremely happy that after 20 plus years it is finally happening.
Well just wanted to tell all my RB friends that I have just won my first award in a Juried art show. this was the second time ever showing my work in a show.
I joined the North Port Art Center just over two weeks ago, I was told the day that I joined that I had time to enter their Masks Juried Art Show. I actually had no idea what to enter one of the members told me that my Panda pieces would qualify so that is what I did and entered those pieces.
Today I went to the reception at the center where they handed out the prizes and to my surprise I recieved an Honorable Mention Award and I guess for someone that entered at the last minute that is pretty good going :-)
