Thought I'd share the good news...
American Icon got first place in the Graphics category (pastels, charcoal, pen & ink) in the juried show for the Tennessee Art League.
I was so tickled, needless to say. All three of my submissions were accepted out of the 55 that made it.
Here are some pictures. The league has a fabulous new gallery:
First one is My Pontiac, there in the back
And here is the one that got first:

I bet you weren't aware that you knew how to paint untill you got this prize:p
It's always inspiring to see one of us to win a prize and/or having one's efforts recognize.
I hope someday to see my work recognize.

Thanks you all so much. I really appreciate your comments. It was pretty exciting!
When they called me to say the paintings got in the show, all I could say was, "get outta' here!"
Great fun - thanks again.
