By some strange miracle, I'd had a really GOOD show last year, so this year seems extra ouchie in comparison to that. Frickin' economy.
Having gotten that out of the way, let me clarify that I absolutely love this show, so having a bad year doesn't change anything. I'll be back, and I have a lot of really good ideas! It's like I've stumbled into some serious art mojo all of a sudden.
It was great to see my artist friends. I miss the ones who couldn't make it. It was great to see some of my friends who came to visit too!
I did well in the show. "Gwen in the Late Fall" won an Honorable Mention in the pencil category, and "Tundra Elegance" got second place in the Miniatures category.
So I've been away for a while now, I'm FINALLY heading back to Oak Run tomorrow. I stayed in Wilton a little longer than planned, family stuff... It sure seems strange that Gwen's not here, sigh...
I'm really pleased with how the birds look, probably the next time I'm down will be to pick them up! Gotta get that new chicken coop done...
Okay, I'm supposed to be sorting through some old stuff here at Mom's house, I'd better go do that before I get hollered at again. ;-)
