On Saturday 3/29/08 I entered 3 works of art in the Iowa Artists regional show in Ames.
"Iowa Artists is a non-profit educational program for Iowa adult artists, and its purpose is to sponsor annual exhibits which provide an opportunity to exhibit original works, to share ideas and to receive professional criticism, advice and encouragement, as aids to upgrading the quality of artwork."
I took an acrylic, a watercolor, and a colored pencil painting. I was thrilled to receive an honorable mention ribbon on my watercolor - Leaf Trio. I received helpful and encouraging comments on my work.
A good friend joined the organization this year & she received an honorable mention ribbon on her portrait drawing. I was so happy & proud for her. There was so much to learn and I know that comments I heard through the day will help me with my future works.
(Leaf Trio is available for sale. Leave me a comment if you would like me to contact you with details.) Leaf Trio has been sold.
