If you know me, you know that I am not a boastful person. It’s not easy talking about myself. I like to be behind the camera focusing my attention on my clients. This is uncomfortable, but I am so excited to say I won 1st Place. Yes! A Blue Ribbon on both of my art pieces. 

I entered the Artists of the Arbuckles Art Exhibit at the Jean Carr Gallery in Sulphur, Oklahoma. I have been watching this art exhibit for 3 years. I’ve wanted to enter but felt uncomfortable. Scared of the feeling of putting myself or my art out there for people to judge. I finally got the nerve to enter and didn’t look back. Choosing the images was the easy part, framing and matting was not. Presentation is a key element, and the time and attention to detail paid off.

The art exhibit will be on display thru the end of May. If you get a chance go by and visit, there are some talented people in our state. Thank you to everyone for your advise and the nudges to get out of my box.  If you're feeling like you're not growing or progressing, get out of your comfort zone, it will help you grow.
