the second runner up is...

...me! I got home yesterday from a hit-and-run trip to NY and an email from Lucy of the 10x10 Brunswick committee was waiting for me. I called her as soon as I saw it, and I was pleasantly surprised to hear that my "Lemon" painting came in third place in this year's publicity contest! Lucy said the image won't be on the poster or the other show materials (that's only for the first place piece), but it will likely make the paper when the article advertising the show comes out. I am really happy to hear that my piece was considered at all, and the fact that it made the top three is exciting. Last year's 10x10 show was a lot of fun: the turnout was great, there was plenty of yummy food, and the work was diverse, interesting, and beautiful. Now I have something extra to look forward to this year!

interactive art walk

Well, another First Friday Art Walk has come and gone! Last night's art walk was busy...not quite as busy as last month's, but busy nonetheless. It was a beautiful evening and lots of friends and familiar faces stopped by to say hello. I'm happy to say I sold a little painting, but the big star of the evening was Jen from Interactive Tarot! She was non-stop last night, doing reading after reading for curious art walkers. We arranged a private area for readings, using a folding screen and a hanging rack with fabric draped over it, which worked perfectly. I am so happy that Jen was able to join me, and I look forward to many more First Friday Art Walks with her. If you are curious, please check out www.interactivetarot.net for more information, or just stop by next month to see what all the fuss is about!
