"Buoy Dance" 16x12" Pastel on sanded paper Sold
Today I got notice that my piece "Buoy Dance" was accepted into the IAPS 16th Annual Exhibition! I'm more than just thrilled that it's going to the Butler Museum in Youngstown, Ohio, but mostly because I've earned 1 (one) point towards the IAPS Master circle (it takes 5 to get Master Status). The International Association of Pastel Societies "represents pastel societies uniting in a common cause--to demonstrate the validity and quality of fine art in pastel around the world."
So, I've got one small problem...I have to retrieve the painting from the gallery that it hangs in before it sells! I'm thinking (as I write this) that I'll have the gallery owner ship it for me to it's destination. Ooops, I have two problems..... how can I get away from my family for the weekend to attend the awards ceremony? Augh...the dual duty as a mom and artist!
Anyway, I'll figure it out, when there is a will, there is a way!
