A Pleasant Surprise!


Puzzle

This morning I received a phone call from The Art Center of Estes Park. Apparently there had been a small glitch in their system and they wanted to let me know that another of my pieces had been accepted in their "Lines Into Shapes" show. My jewelry submission, Puzzle, pictured above was also accepted. You can imagine my delight!

You may remember Puzzle from a spring show that I did; it actually took first place in that show in the glass category. It has companion earrings that I will enter in their miniatures collection. The Art Center of Estes Park lets artists include miniature works, once one of their pieces has been accepted. Tonight I'm off to work on a small version of a bowl or plate to compliment my other piece, A Grove of Trees. Pictures to follow in another post.

Happy creating all!

Congratulations on your happy news! Your pieces are absolutely amazing, and I am delighted to have found your blog (via your comment on Kim VanDerHoek's blog). Does your relationship with an excellent photographer aid in getting such great photos of your work to post? :>)

Hi Mary! And welcome to my blog, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I always appreciate feedback. Yes, I think my husband's photos of my work does help things a lot. Another friend has asked him to start photographing her work too!
