I entered an art show and…

I entered the Broward Art Guilds Juried Art Show-“In the Mix” and I came in 3rd place. I have been happy all day. I dropped off 2 pieces on Sunday and was given a receipt with a phone number to call back on Wednesday to see if my work made the cut. So this morning when I awoke, I pulled out the number, but afraid of rejection, I told myself that I will call at 3pm (why ruin my morning if it was bad news) at 1pm the phone rang and from the caller ID I knew it was the guild but I decided to let my voice mail get the call (why receive rejection in person when voice mail can do it). Now anyone that knows me, the Type A personality that I am, I have no fear. I a run a multi-million dollar division of a major corporation and deal with people all day, the good, the bad and the ugly. But this was different. So I retrieved the message while holding my breath, to find out that it was a congratulations call and one of my pieces titled “A Train” came in 3rd place. I have been smiling all day. This Saturday is the gallery reception and originally I was to be out of town, but my plans changed and I will be able to attend. Did I say I have been smiling all day!!!! You can view my work here or please visit the gallery this Sat. July 19 from 6-8 (the work will be on show until August 23rd)
