Pet Shop Contest Entry
Since I'm on the final countdown (18 days!) till this show opens I want to see if I can squeeze in one more pet painting - picked by you!! Also, to prompt me to finally figure out how to operate my Epson printer I will be offering a yet to be determined print from the show.
To enter, simply leave a comment with your name & email letting me know your favorite pet and include a little story if you want. The winner of the print will be chosen using a random number generator and announced after the show opens. And maybe, just maybe you'll see your favorite pet make an appearance in the show!
And now onto the CRAZY GOOD NEWS!
Just a few short days ago I found out that I was accepted to the Vermont Studio Center for a month long residency this winter - 4 weeks with 3 meals a day, a private art studio, access to a daily life drawing model and a separate place to sleep. It'll be 30 degrees below ZERO and up to my bum in snow but I am SO EXCITED!!! Can I say "squee" now? Okay - SQUEEEEE!!!
