Hi Gang. Just a note to let you guys know that I got one of my paintings accepted to be published in up-coming "Painter" book, published by Ballistic Publishing. Seems I made page #58. Click here (http://www.ipaintpeople.com/wetcanvas/ballistic_pub_entry.pdf) to see a PDF file of the page. My painting is lower left... some of you may remember it.

Here's a link to the ballistic page (http://www.ballisticpublishing.com/books/painter/callforentries/?PHPSESSID=61d776f2747eaf7bc6aab9a578e1638d).

I feel lucky to be a part of it, given all of the stunning entries by other artists... including some from this forum.

Peace all.:)

Truthfully, if it weren't for the feedback and the push I get from all of you in this forum, I'm sure my artwork would be much less "evolved". Many times because I know that I will be posting my art here amongst you all, I try a little harder.

(sigh some of us did not make the cut.)

I wouldn't be detered by that... art appreciation is so subjective. There is no telling why one piece is chosen over another. Many time it boils down to luckily having someone on the jury that shares an artist's point of view.

Kristen said it best...

....some did not make the cut this year, lol.

My son this xmas morn... this is the first xmas that he "gets it"...
