GPAC Art Show and Sale

Yesterday was the opening reception and award ceremony for the Grand Prairie Arts Council Art Show and Sale.  I had two of my drawings in the show.   When I walked into the Uptown Gallery and saw the amazing art on display, I felt completely out of my league.  I was wondering how my work had been juried into the show. There were 54 artists entered  and approximately 120 works of art on display.  The work was divided into 8 categories.  My drawings were in the Drawing category which included pastel, ink, graphite and colored pencil.  My "Engine 2" won 3rd Place!

Well, I"M not surprised at all that you won a ribbon -- your talent is amazing, and this piece is beautiful. I do know that feeling you described of walking into a show and feeling overwhelmed by the other art. A dear friend of mine would say, "Pull up your socks and believe that you belong there -- because the people who count think that you DO belong there." And obviously, you did. Fabulous! Congratulations!
