Goodbye Sweet Summer...and Great News!!

Today was my first day back at it...
I am already frazzled beyond belief!!  No matter how much I try to prepare during the summer, I am simply overwhelmed going back.
Goodbye long days of playing in my studio, and naps, dear sweet naps, You will be missed incredibly...sigh..
 
So, on to my news... 
A while back, I posted this piece that I did on canvas...
You may recall all of the "issues" I have had to face with painting on canvas.  These issues have kept me from a long time goal of submitting work to shows...well, I found the courage to submit this to The N.E.W. Show at Visual Art Exhchamge in Raleigh, and you know what...it was accepted!!!
 
I could not even believe it when I saw my name amongst all the artists that were juried into the show!!
 
Again...I can not thank you all enough for such encouragement along the way!!!  This small accomplishment feels so amazing!!
Until next time,
