Art Expo Honorable Mention
Letting Go, reduction block print, won Honorable Mention at the Learning & Product Expo: Art! at the Burbank Hilton this weekend. 8-] Not only did I get a ribbon, but I got $100 gift certificate for Dick Blick! Woo-hoo.
I entered 3 pieces and 2 got in -- Letting Go and Paleo-Umi. The two pieces inspired by Will. Letting Go was from a dream, and Paleo-Umi was a commission to illustrate his game character in ancestor form.
I guess it's true when you invest emotion in a work it comes through. These are two emotional pieces for me.
Now I'll have to tell Will Letting Go is an award-winning print. He has his print hanging by the front door. I think I'll hang ours over the fireplace. 8-]
