ACCEPT AND REJECT . . .

The good news is that my painting "Farmall" (fluid acrylic) has been accepted into the Georgia Watercolor Society National Exhibition!
On the flip side, the bad news is that, once again, I've been rejected from another national show. 

Oh, well.  I consider that my entry fee is my contribution to Art, and it will help fund an award or workshop there, so it's going to a good cause.

Art gets a lot of my cash throughout the year.  Hope "he" appreciates it and spends it wisely!

Wonderful news Deb .. Congratulations, and well earned.

Now, about this painting ... its mind boggling. Its like a maze. I don't know how you did this. It really is AMAZING!

Deb, congratulations on the acceptance of "Farmall" in the Georgia National Exhibition! This is super!
Many of us would probably be much, much richer if we did not paint:-) However, we would not be as happy and fulfilled:-)

Thanks all!
Nancy - it's just very slow-going and finally it comes together.
Christiane - I agree!
Hilda - hope you come back often!
Ginny - I begin with a general tracing of the main shapes and then spend many more hours drawing in the rest of those lines!
