Passions of an Odd Chick

That's my watercolour in the Metropolitan Museum!! The frame was not what I suggested but - oh well......

okay... No matter that it's a fake set-up.

Get this!!

I made this funny fake at Dumpr. Go there, it's free, have fun.

Anyway, I thought I'll put this on my vision board and maybe the Law of Attraction will then take my art into the museum.

MY DREAM :I really want to do Fine Art someday and have a museum purchase it. Big DREAM i know, but you gotta dream... (and I have goals, and I'm working steadily creating a volume of work and I just have to live another 50 years and take 1000 art classes!!)

Well, .... drum roll.... no, a museum did not purchase this watercolor. BUT.... for the first time I entered a juried art show and for the first time I was ACCEPTED. Yeah!! ARE YOU YEAHING WITH ME??? Cuz it's a big deal! FIRST TIME STUFF. It's a goal met in this long journey of a dream. 315 standard pieces were presented and only 150 (standard) made it in. And guess where they will hang for the show??? A MUSEUM!! how cool is that??? The name of the painting is "World Traveler" - in case you run across it in the MET. Or you can see it hanging humbly but deep-down-excited at the very fine Roswell Museum And Art Center from August 7-17th.

I've been meaning to post about an artist from northern Iowa who painted all her life and was finally "discovered" at age 91. I hope your dreams come true before that age! I'm sure they will.....keep up the lovely creations!

WOOHOO - PTL! This is a tremendous "first step" (which is WAY ahead of me!) and I'm so very happy for you!!! Do post on your blog what the outcome is--are the paintings judged, are they sold etc?

Very Cool!!! I'm with Linda - let's see that painting! I'm curious what a painting with that title might look like.

I hope you enjoy seeing it there hanging in good company and in a genuine arty space. I hope it ends up in a nice, prominent spot.
