Saturday, I went to the Atlanta Artists Center to submit work for this month’s show and pick up some from previous ones. At the last minute, I decided to include a realistic oil rock study. I blogged about it on September 20, 2008, “ Back To Square One, Rocks”. While I was at the gallery, another artist introduced herself saying she admired my work and was happy finally to put a face with the name. To add to the delightful moment she decided to buy the piece I was picking up,(shown here.) When I returned home, I received a call from the gallery saying the “Rock Study” painting won an Honorable Mention with a small cash prize! Now that is the kind of stimulus package I like. Not only did I earn it, it motivated me to continue create!
