I just couldn't contain myself. My husband stole my thunder here around town. After the reception, I was out of town at the workshop given by the juror of the show -- but I can tell you guys!!!

I had my first acceptance into the Southeastern Pastel Society 10th International Show. I had previously been in the Member's Show. I was just happy being included in the International Show! There were entries from all over the United States and I felt good just being in their company. Imagine my surprise when they announced my name at the reception on May 2 as an "Exceptional Merit Award" Winner! I'm sure you could hear me squeal into the next county.

The painting "Evening Gold" is a pastel on Wallis Sanded Paper, 16" x 20". The scan does not show all the colors in the dark areas - lots of deep blue, purple, and reds.


Thanks for letting me share this news with you.

Congratulations on your inclusion and award. It's well deserved recognition for your hard work and a fine painting.

When you come down from that cloud, get busy sending out the press releases and promo pieces announcing your accomplishment to your market and your collectors.

Always follow up such good career news with good marketing!

My best to you...David

Carly, Hi -- glad to know you too!

David -- you really did get me started thinking about press releases again. Haven't seemed to find time to do those. I'm like Arlene -- can you be my marketing guru?

But, I did have an article in the "Cherokee Tribune" (the local county paper) about my inclusion in an invitational show and they mentioned the award. Good article and good pictures with my artwork too!

Thanks you guys for your words of encouragement. Reception for my Cherokee County show is this Friday evening and it gives me a boost to hear your words. I am always just a little self-concious. Did I spell that right?

Anyway - thanks again.

I had been thinking about driving up to Gainesville to see the show; now, I definitely have to be there! I was wondering if I would see any familiar Georgia WC! names in the show. Congratulations! Wish I could be there for the reception....
