I've put my snow scene aside for now... and started something new. Just barely started something new, so I'll show you all soon.

I found out yesterday my piece Brown Eyed Girl won First Place People's Choice in the Jaffrey Civic Center Fall Show in Jaffrey, NH! I'm trotting over there later today to get my picture taken with the other winners and our pieces, so when I get back I'll repost with a photograph of us! One of the other winners was my friend Gary Ruuska who I will actually be having a show with at that very gallery later this year! Go colored pencil, lol.

& I want to invite any of you from the area to the opening of the Thorne Sagendorph Gallery Biennial Regional Jurors Choice Competition opening reception this Friday. Its a big show in a wonderful large space and always a treat to see. The reception usually gets a lot of people so if you want snacks, get there early! I have 2 pieces that got in this year, so I'm anxious to see them on the big white walls of the gallery space.

Public Reception:Friday, January 23, 5:30-7:30 p.m., hosted by Friends of the
Thorne.

Congratulations Nicole! The portrait is beautiful and deserves merit!

I don't know if you returned to my Fisher 400 blog post on Pencil Pushers, but I left you a lengthy thank you note. If you haven't, then I'd like to thank you again here, for being so helpful regarding my paper woes.

Hey, Nicole, it was so nice to see you in Jaffrey today, and to get caught up on what we both have been up to.
