It's Official!


I know I already posted about this but it is now up on their site. My dawing Zen won 3rd place in the children's category in the Portrait Society of America's Member's Showcase Competition (for those of you that didn't see that post)! Here are the winners in the show http://portraitsociety.org/membersonly-competitions/2008/winners.htm

It is soooo amazing to see my colored pencil drawing alongside all those traditional oils! & and dang good traditional oils! I just wish it listed the media it was made in and the sizes along with the titles. but YAY!

I feel bad, but I won't be posting any new artwork this week. The kids have winter break this week from school  and I am busy cleaning the house from after leaving the kids at home with their father for four days... and planning my 6 year old's birthday party which we are having on  Thursday. We invited her entire kindergarten class - 20 kids - to my little house, so we are having to put furniture in the garage etc. Fun huh? I think I'll be buying the cake instead of making it this year!

Nicole...very well done! I know it must feel great to have that honor! Personally I thought 1st place could as well have been yours. It is too bad that "colored pencil" is not listed anywhere but I am sure the word will soon get around!

Enjoy the snow, kids and BD party!
