entries for the Muskegon Regional

My friend Mary Andersen and I are rolling the dice today and driving some paintings over to see if they are accepted in the Regional exhibition.

I'm entering BLOODLINES (above) and REDEEMED #1 (left). We'll see if one or both or none get in! There's no predicting it. I look at all my work from the last two years and it's hard to pick. BLOODLINES won a people's choice in Lowell last year. REDEEMED #1 has gotten good comments from people I respect and I like it a lot. Another thing to consider is the juror. Her work has a spiritual element, so maybe mine will resonate with her.

Next week I need to decide which 4 things I want to enter into Festival in Grand Rapids. Then there's another show in Lowell.

Wow, talk about clear and strong, Bloodlines above. A very confident piece, Virginia.

Thanks, Nik! I hope the juror sees it that way!

Nope, the juror saw it differently and I am in good company. Nearly all the artists I spoke to at the Festival take in got UNACCEPTED stamped on their card. Should be an interesting show.
