Cider Painters of America Award

I just received word that I have been given an Award of Excellance by the Cider Painters of America (miniature painters society) for one of my paintings. This is my very first award from a miniature society for my work. I have been painting miniatures just over a year now so I am very excited to receive this. The letter says "This is an award that is given to an artist for excellence in painting in any media." It also went on to say "The judges had a difficult time this year selecting the best of the exhibit to give the award to since they had so many wonderful entries, but your work stood out from all the others!" What a HUGE complement. I know there were some fabulous artists there so to be one of the lucky ones chosen is such an honor. The piece that was chosen was "On the Rocks- Meerkats".

Thanks Mona, Deb, Karen, and Barbara. It is an honor to be chosen as I know that alot of the folks who entered are such wonderful artists. I am feeling more "lucky" than proud!!! Well, maybe a bit proud too. :-) I am happy this was chosen as it is one of my favorite pieces- I will have a hard time letting it go. I don't have many of those!
