The definition of the word includes “…favorable reception, embracing…”

Today I received notice that I have been invited to the Michigan Fine Arts Competition for one of my submitted works, Berry Tangled 24 x 20 Acrylic. This piece will be exhibited at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center from June 21st through August 22nd. I am beyond excited and feel very fortunate to have been one of 80 selected from 640 entries by the Juror, noted gallery owner Jerald Melberg from the Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina. I encourage you to Google him and ready about him and the good he does for children in Peru.

I am so excited that I can not really express in words my joy! I am fueled to complete the series that I am working on with even more gusto as 4 paintings are backlogged in my head and need to arrive. Leaving now to go paint! A good week to all! Get out there and create!
