Well, I entered my painting of Azaleas into an online art exhibit, 1200 entries. I received special recognition for my work. It is always a good feeling to know someone else values your work.
The best award , however, was when on of my students not only got accepted into the Scholastic Art Competition, but she received an honorable mention! Again, there were around 1300 entries! and she won!! Yes, I am very proud of my students! I will be posting photos of the show and the award cerenony. I totally plan on going!
