I came in second place which was awesome. I received prize money and a gift certificate to a local restaurant which was unexpected. My painting sold which was amazing.
The young lady who purchased my work is really sweet. I just meet her to give her my painting. Although I know she will take great care of my work, it is still a little sad letting one of my "babies" go. I spoke to my daughter (number one baby...haha) soon after. She gave me many encouraging words. I wonder if all artists have a tough time letting go.....hum.
Enjoy the things that you have but remember they are only things. It is your family and friends that are the true treasures.
