Hi all you friends. I just had to share this with you as I am really excited. I entered my painting of an owl THE EYE THAT SEES ALL in a competition with The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazines. Forgot all about it and received a letter saying that my painting was one of the twenty chosen to be judged during the Art Materials Live Exhibition in Birmingham. Yippee!!!

I will be waiting now for the results.

Thank you all so much for your response and encouragement. I'm just happy to be in the twenty chosen. No great expectations at all. Kathie, I am such a nerd when it comes to computers and just don't know how to show you the link to THE EYE THAT SEES ALL but it is on my website. Perhaps someone out there can help.

Chammi...hate to tell ya this but I just checked out your site and couldn't find "The Eye That Sees All" anywhere (literally checked every one of the paintings on it for that title.
Had to click on your name (chammi kaiser) and then clicked "find all threads started by"...to find it. Gorgeous painting, btw...well deserved!
