Every fall our neighboring town of Sidney has a juried Fine Art Show and every year I give it a shot.  Three years ago I got two pieces in, last year nothing was accepted, but this year was different!

This year I submitted three pieces and all three got in!  What a surprise.  Even more surprising, I recieved a phone call from the show, letting me know I won an award!  They couldn't tell me what I won, but they strongly encouraged me to attend the awards ceremony.  I did and it turns out I won Juror's Choice.  I was in store for yet one more surprise; my pencil portrait won Honourable Mention.  What a thrill!  As I perused the show later that evening, I learned that my two oil paintings had already sold! I went home that night on clould 9.  The three accepted pieces are displayed on my current gallery page; they are "Gathering Ghosts", "Some Considertions" and "Calm Within the Storm".
