There must have been some kind of disturbance in The Force this week, and my stars have realigned in a most favorable configuration. I won a First Place in the 51st Alpine Artists Holiday Show on July 28, and the Judge actually used my painting as an example to illustrate how he selected the winners. The next day I found out one of my entries was selected for the Paint the Parks Top 100 national tour, and the other entry was a runner up. I also received an acceptance into the 2011 Mile High National Show. And last but not least, I received a check from one of my galleries for 3 paintings that sold. A big thank you to my lucky stars.
