"Glimpse" Got Third Prize at the "Color My World" Show!

Third prize at the Dublin Area Art League annual fall show.

What a wonderful surprise!  I was awarded the third prize in the fine art category of the Dublin Area Art League fall show "Color My World".

Sometimes I paint with other artists, in an open studio environment. Other times I take painting classes. When you are surrounded by painters it's pretty useful to give each other critiques and suggestions. Several times I have asked a fellow painter or a teacher for input on how to solve a problem or make a composition better.
However, I'm particularly proud of this award because Glimpse is a painting that I have completed in my studio, all on my own, without anyone's advice. I don't remember anyone (other than my family) even seeing it before it was done.
It's all my own planning and troubleshooting. And I got a prize for it! :))

At the award ceremony, being the current president of the Dublin Area Art League, I was the one announcing the awards, reading from a list that was given to me by the event chair, the talented Pat Getha. I started from the honorable mentions, up to best of show; when I got to third place I got to announce my own name!  Awkward!  But in a good way. :)

The Color My World exhibit is up until December 11th, 2015
at 5600 Post Rd
Dublin, OH
