A well deserved honor! Wish I could be there to cheer for your paintings, but at least I can say..."I knew you when..."

Can't wait to see you on the 18th!

Deb's work is submitted under students, and students are not listed with the general emerging artists. :)

I had a wonderful time at the Art after Dark event. While I was with Deb, she made two sales! I haven't talked with her since I left, so she may have even more. Sad to say my pictures did not turn out real well, but Bobby, Deb's husband does have some and maybe they will be better.

Here are a few....

Thanks everyone, it was a positive experience for me. Since this was my first exhibit I was flooded with self doubts. I hardly said a word to my husband on the hour or so trip to the theater...I'm not ready, I'm not good enough, what if no one likes my work? But all those fears melted away once I got there; and nothing warmed my heart more than to see Phyllis walking towards me among the 500 or more people there. At the last, the president of the Florida Theater bought a painting for his wife. I sold 4 in all which was good because I was not expecting to sell any! I have photos put up at http://photos.yahoo.com/Deborah234 in a folder called Art After Dark.

I met Phyllis, Carly, Arlene and many others through wetcanvas and owe much gratitude to them and wetcanvas for the things I've learned and for their support. When I stood in the Florida Theater last Friday night I felt like I was in a dream world. I never expected to be were I am at today...and so soon.

Deb, Congratulations on your show and sales. I checked out your work from the photo albums you posted, I am very impressed. Your work is beautiful, a lot if it seems to be very calming and contemplative. -Lisa
