I am happy to report that I was the fortunate recipient of a couple of awards from fall shows. At Williams Station Day in Atmore, Alabama I won an Award of Merit in the fine arts cagegory for the work in my exhibition:
And I am very pleased to announce that my beloved Marth-ra pendant, Winged Thing number three, is now an award winning piece! She won an Award of Excellence at the prestigous Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival. This was a huge thrill as the competition there is always stiff. There are so many talented artist at this show I am sure that deciding who gets an award is a challenge for the judges. I feel blessed to have been among those honored.
In total I won three awards this year. I am greatful for the encouragement this brings me. It makes me want to move forward with my experimentation and continue to create more advanced peices. I cannot wait to see what next year will bring.
