Yay...I'm in

the local juried art show this weekend.
This is a show that is known as the most difficult show in this area to be accepted into. I've shown in it a number of times now, but it's always a moment of holding your breath when you call the phone number three days after you drop off your work, listening to hear if you've gotten in.
Even when you're rejected (hate that word) you at least know you're in good company because I've seen some of the most well respected artists in this area get turned away.
I was only going to try for one painting this time, but in the end, decided on two. What the heck...it can only help increase your odds...lol
I had one out of the two accepted! Yay....I'll take that any day!
The one that got in.....it's the koi painting that you see in my last post.
Guess I get to dress up and go to an opening on Friday!!
