Last Saturday

This is from last Saturday at the reception. It was held at The CENTER for ARTS & SCIENCES . The juried show was presented by the Brazosport Art League. I felt quite honored to win this award there. Three TAODA artists also entered. Joyce took second place, Janet took an honorable mention. Third place went to jewelry.

Dolls for Critique

This is in Las Vegas, NV in July when we went for the third stage of artist membership into ODACA. My fat belly wasn't part of the critique,thank goodness. The three were happy to be there and my fat face shows my happiness in being accepted. This image isn't the greatest but I wanted to share it as Joyce Patterson, ODACA, was kind enough to do the photography. 

Onward to create some new figures. I finished one and it is with three others in a juried show in Brazosport, The Center for Arts & Sciences. The reception is Aug. 23 at which time awards are presented. I'm not expecting any but will enjoy being there. My philosophy regarding competitions is "It's an honor to be juried in as there are hundreds of entries, so being selected is honorable since those selections are limited in number and quality."My doll friends, Joyce Patterson and Janet Bodin also have entries there so we will cheer one another on being present.

That Time again

Not getting much done since getting back from Vegas lights & baubles! House painters have been dragging along slowly thus finding more work that needs attention. Too bad the dolls can't do it! LOL 
Today I added my friend Marsha Krohn's blog. Be sure & visit it to see two of her latest dolls that she took to Vegas for her third stage into ODACA. 
Have a sunny day!
