Oh man, I completely forgot to mention in my previous post about MediaWest, about the art show!
I haven't entered any art for four or five years now. But because we weren't selling out of our room, I had time to create some pieces.
I ended up having eight pieces in the show. Seven of them sold and three of them went to auction! Rockin'! I ended up making some good money, which was great. :-) (renegade782003
- glad you guys won two of mine!)
I don't normally go to the art auction on Sunday night unless there's a piece that I want. But the three that I wanted I ended up getting for almost minimum bid. But I saw the list and that all three of my pieces that went to auction were in the first three groups. I was curious as to how they'd do, so I went to the auction with several of my friends and a bunch more of my friends were sitting in front of us.
And it was only because we were there at the start of the auction that we heard the art show awards being announced. I wasn't really paying all that close attention, chatting with charityflint
, when suddenly I heard:"And for BEST HORROR, the winner is Saving Dean, by Barbara Nice-Miller."
I truly wish someone could've caught the stunned
look on my face as my jaw dropped and all of my friends burst into applause and started hugging me. I honestly couldn't believe I'd won something! Here I haven't entered art in like, five years and my first year back and I win!
I do have to shake my head at the category for which I won, because I honestly don't think the art was that scary! LOL!
In case you're curious, here's the piece that won:
