This is my first post in quite a while. We have successfully moved and are enjoying our new home. I am spending some time in the new studio, but have no new work to post just yet. I did hear from the Artist Magazine a week or so ago, that I was selected as a finalist in the still life category of their annual contest. One of my drawings from earlier this year (shown above) was my entry in the contest. Winners have already been selected and notified, but we'll have to wait for the December issue to learn who they are. Being a finalist means that my name will be listed in the December issue (no image of my work though). I also will receive (drum roll....) a frameable certificate! Being named is definitely better than being unnamed - I'll just literally have to go back to the drawing board and try for better next year.
