And this is the third piece I put in. Yes, I was a little disappointed that I only got honorable mention, but a lot of people really liked it.
And this was my first commision. A lady asked for the artist who painted it, I said it was me. And she asked if I was selling it. I sold it, and that woman made my day. I couldn't believe it. No one has every asked to buy something I had created. That painting was just something I didn't take too seriously and just had fun with it. I was surprised and honored.
