That you never know! About a month ago I entered three art pieces in State Fair (which is not til August/September). I've been not as impressed with the equine art division the last couple years so I entered "The First of Spring" and "Levade." Also on a whim entered the somewhat controversial "Proud Heritage" in the drawing category. State Fair is a really tough show to get into. I've only managed it twice before.
Well, got my letters today. Two no, one yes. OMG, "Proud Heritage" got in!!!! Wow! You never know! ;-) Hmm, that gives me three weeks to get it framed. Ooh, that's not going to be cheap. :-/
