I was mentioned honorably

I have been flying high this weekend because I have received my first art exhibit prize. My piece, Mother Earth, was an Honorable Mention recipient in The 2nd Annual Mary Show, which opened this weekend at Poudre River Gallery. The juror, Suzanne Frazier, is a contemplative artist in Longmont, CO, who I have never met. She said about my piece:

The juxtaposition of elements of the piece created a unique perspective and presented the artist’s intention.  The joy of creation is present in this piece.

I’m blown away because this is the first piece in a long time that’s really turned me on while I was doing it. I am looking forward to becoming more technically proficient in hand stitching, beading and machine sewing, but I loved incorporating those elements with paper and paint. I love this piece so much and am so excited to do more in this style.
