Some of you are friends on facebook and have already heard my news but I didn't put the story there...just an announcement.
When I dropped off the entries for the art show (competition), I went to the museum and before I could enter the building a man approached me outside and asked if he could help me. I asked him if this was the right place to leave my entries. He said yes and that he could take them. I gave him the envelope with my entry, my check and the three photos of my entries. He said thanks..and I asked when I would know if I was accepted. He said that I should get a call by May 15th.
May 15th came and went.
I was a sad gal. I never received a phone call! First I was sad, then worried because my daughter thought it was strange that I gave the entry to a man, didn't get his name or a receipt...what can I say...I am very trusting. Then I got mad. How unfair to not let me know one way or another! So the next day, I sat depressed in the afternoon and decided that I would just call the museum to make sure they got my entry...and maybe find out something.
So I looked up the number on the internet and called. This time one of my first questions was "Who am I talking to?" Then I said I needed to know if they received my entries and was I accepted or not....
And glory be...he said yes and that I was accepted. I questioned why I didn't heard from them by the 15th and he said the deadline had been extended and they letter went out that day.
I was flooded with a bunch of emotions....relief, happiness, expectation....
Now today I expected the letter and no letter ?!? I've have already
told a bunch of people so I hope there is no mix up.
Anyway, my photos don't do the paintings justice....but I thought I would try to post them anyway.
I won't know anything for a while....the show runs from June through July 3rd. I just feel honored to be able to exhibit them and am now working on some to display at a local book store where they help local artists sell their paintings.
