"Happy Happy"

I entered 2 drawings into the 46th annual Glendale Arts Council- Juried Fine Arts Competition and I got both of them in!! Not only did I get them in but, in the Pencil/Ink Category , I won the first place award for " Pygmy Owl"

And Second Place award for "Horse with No Name"

I'm so Excited!! And a little relieved at the same time, I was holding my breath hoping I would not have to take the 2 hour drive back up to Phoenix if they didn't get in!!. This was a nice surprise my first week of being officially unemployed : )
The Show runs January 28 through February 22, In Glendale Arizona.

Till next time!!

"A Bit of Color"

It seems like forever since I last posted. So much has happened since my last post. The company I have worked at for over 4 years shut down our Tucson office, so as of tomorrow I am officially unemployed. This is a first ever for me!! I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet, probably freak out for starters! I will probably try to pick up some freelance work until something comes up. Not a huge Graphic Design market in the Tucson area. : (

Meanwhile, I have a couple of juried art shows I am entering. One is at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. The other is in Glendale Arizona. I will be dropping off 2 drawings on Saturday the 17th; hopefully I’ll get in. I will let you know how I do!

I have started playing around with a bit of color, just on the borders. I’m not sure if I will continue or not. Let me know what you think! I’m enjoying it for the moment; I’ll see where it takes me.

Till next time!
