Art Thrills!

National Arts Program First Place Award This past month, I entered one my paintings in a National Arts Program Exhibit and to my great surprise and joy, my painting, titled JazWorks, won first place for the amateur mixed media category. As this was my first public exhibition of any of my work, it was such a surprise and tremendous thrill!
For thrill number two, Julie Prichard from the wonderful The Land of Lost Luggage will be teaching an on-line class titled Layer Love which I've enrolled in. The first class starts today so I'm sure I will have lots to report on as the weeks go by. It was designed to learn Julie's layering styles and techniques in painting- and as she says, turn our "blah into rah"! Can't wait!

Fantastic Jill!! That is such good news and so well deserved. I knew from the first moment that I saw this painting that it was a winner. And now you have the blue ribbon as proof!! Great job.
