Hello Everyone,

Just wanted share my unexpected good news. One of my paintings was awarded an Honorable Mention at a rather large, local show! It was unexpected because it is an odd piece & in oil when I usually work in pastel. The painting is an oil so I am not posting it here (it is in Still life forum) but I spend most of my time here in pastel forum & wanted to share news with you guys. (Hope this is OK to do - if not would a guide let me know) Thanks.

I had to go check it out (http://wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=620760). It IS unusual--but obviously a really creative and fun painting, and well done! Congrats on the award, Tanja.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks sooo much for everyone's congratulations. I really appreciate it!
Robert & Charlie - I would love to post a link, but I don't know how. I tried & tried but nothing happened. I don't know if the glich is in my computer or me but it just doesn't work. Thanks for the congrats.
Paula, Don, Potoma, Pastellady, Karen & Chris - thanks so much for the congrats. I really appreciate it.
Chuas - thanks so much for the lovely comments & the congratulations. I do appreciate it.
Deborah - it WAS a fun painting, especially since I did it out of my head & with no ref., if I did something wrong there wasn't any proof! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments & congrats.
Elizabeth08 - thanks so much.

Hi Donna,

Thanks so much & I am trying to break out a "rut" by forcing myself out of comfort zone.
