Raymo- The strange thing is that every time my husband takes a picture of me its lopsided, all blurry, forgets the flash or something. When he took this one I was like "yes, a good picture, I'm in focus, its clear, and he held the camera staight!" It wasn't until I got in the car and was looking at it that I realized the ears!

Been lurking to get familiar with acrylics... am usually over in Drawing & Sketching...

Came upon Bright Eyes here and couldn't resist commenting...

You look pleased and happing in your hubby's photo ... the bunny ears are a nice "happy accident"...

but in your winning picture entry there's also a bit of self-fulfilling prophecy...

the ecstasy on the face seems what you'd have looked like at the moment you'd been told you'd won all three ribbons... and being kissed at that same moment by a proud hubby! I really like how all these elements come together for you...

So here's an echo to all the congratulations

Thank you all so much! I really appreciate it! I do most of my painting after hours when the work is done, and the kids are asleep. I get really tired and discouraged, but seeing all these post makes me just want to pull a few more all nighters! Thank you all again so so very much!:) :) :) :) :D
