"Well aren't you now considered an 'Award-Winning Photographer'?" a friend asked yesterday.
It's a humbling thing to consider. Award-Winning. And so another descriptive category is added to my "Title". Yet, my coffee tastes just as sweet today as it did on Thursday morning, descriptives, titles or no!
This past Thursday afternoon at "The Artists Reception" for the Mayfest Art Exhibit at Lakewold Gardens, I was surprised to discover that one of my three entries had been awarded a 2nd Place out of all the beautiful art work displayed there. My very first Juried Art Show and I received a 2nd Place Award! It is such a thrill to think that others would consider my work for such as an award. I felt I had passed my first hurdle when all 3 pieces that I had submitted had been accepted to the show and I was grateful for that! Then to receive an award for one of them has been such a boost to my creative commitment. It is such a wonderful confirmation of all the work that goes into the artistic process.
For any of you who have seen my recent Facebook status update, this will be repeat information for you. Are you on Facebook? If so and if you haven't "Liked" my page there yet, I'd appreciate your visit and a "Like"! I don't always post everything the same between this Blog and the FB posting, so, it's another way to stay informed about my photographic art work. You can find the FB Link on my "Contact" page on this site or you can visit my page at: http://www.facebook.com/AWomanWithACamera.PatriciaLWalker
