I'm in and other news

"Elemental memory" 24 x 30 oil on canvas
I recently applied to a member owned gallery in Fredericksburg, Virginia. It is a very established gallery and was Fredericksburg's first artist' cooperative. The process is similar to any gallery submission with a CD of images, resume and artist statement. These are considered by a membership jury and if accepted an interview is scheduled with the board of directors.
My interview was Tuesday evening and I was surprised by how well it went. I got a call yesterday to tell me that I was accepted. 
In the future, my work can be viewed there every month.
824 Caroline Street
Fredericksburg, Virginia

I have been having a little fun with olioboard lately too.

I love designing virtual rooms with no budget.
I also entered the Zatista picture perfect contest with the board below.

In my haste, I mistype the title "The collector's salon" and it reads "colletor" like I am dumb or something. I feel the need to point out that I know the difference.
Anyhoo, vote for me HERE if you feel so inclined.

My Blog address has Patty's Epiphanies spelled incorrectly. I type it in wrong and couldn't correct it! That's one reason I send out the link when I have a new post.
