Back in January I had this idea (which at the time seemed brilliant but was in fact somewhat dumb) to enter seven art competitions. Initially I was thrilled to be selected in to them all, but then when I realized the hassle (and expense) of shipping my paintings all over the United States, my excitement began to wear off. This painting (which is sold ... my parents own it so it had to be "borrowed back" and sent to the Richeson show) wasn't even for sale. So, there was no chance of even a sale from the show!
So, that is why I was so thrilled to see my painting made the cover of the program. Special thanks to Artist Julie Hill for suggesting I enter the the Richeson contest. For more info on the Richeson 75 show, click here.
