Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I posted my completed painting last Friday but I'm putting it on here today just in case you missed it.
|"Anticipation" watercolor on paper 23.5 x 32 Accepted into the 45th Annual Montgomery Art Guild Regions Bank Exhibit|
We had a very eventful weekend at our house. We started off with a bang, Sam, my 2 yr old, and the dare devil in our crew busted his chin open climbing on the bar stools. So we spent a majority of Saturday at urgent care getting Sam glued back together. He was such a trooper, he didn't cry or flinch when they were putting medicine on his chin or using Dermabond! Amazing kid!
I also spent quite a bit of time last getting my painting "Anticipation" framed and running it to the 45th Annual Montgomery Art Guild Regions Bank Exhibition. It's an interesting process, I had to deliver my painting Friday between 10 and 2 and then you had to come back in person Sat between 4:30-5:00 to see if it was accepted. Talk about nerve wracking, nobody wants to do the walk of shame out of the bank with their rejected work. There were lots of us standing around waiting to find out our fate. There was a very intimidating hall with lots of stacked up rejected art. Fortunately I was greeted by a fellow artist and she informed me right away that my painting made it into the show, phew!!! I feel for anyone that had to take home their works, one artist said if she walked out of their with her works she was going home and having a stiff drink. Fortunately I made the cut and didn't have to paint with my tears:)
Before I headed to the exhibit in Montgomery, I stopped to get gas. I decided to multi-task and clean out my car at the same time. I discarded a couple of bags with trash and left. It wasn't until we were at home about an hour later that I realized I also threw away a bag from Target that I had just purchased. So off we went to the gas station to dumpster dive. Fortunately my bag was near the top, so we retrieved our bag and headed home. Steven, my 5 yr old, was pretty upset because the bag contained a new DVD for him and Sam. So crisis averted and I wasn't out $30.
