Thank You For All the Votes!

Holy Cow!  I just discovered that my submission to Mind Wide Open won first prize!  I have been so busy that I haven’t even had time to post my artwork on my blog.  Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me!  I am definitely floating on cloud nine.  Most of you saw my entry, but for those that didn’t, here it is:

It is an altered, wicker bird cage.  I found it at Goodwill for a buck fifty and used all my ribbons and flowers to jazz it up.  Gail gives us an image and a word prompt each month to get us started.  This month, the word was "forever" and the image was a beautiful ballerina. 

I am a fairy junky and cut out the ballerina and added wings, a tulle tutu and a crown.  She is guarding an egg — I’m not sure whether it’s hers.  This was such a fun project and all my ladies at work ooed and ahhed.

I owe an extra special thank you to Chuck.  He took some really phenomenal shots.  It was a booger to shoot and apparently he had quite some set up trying to get it.  I wish that I had taken a picture of him trying to take a picture.

Thank you again to everyone!

    Congratulations!!!! You are becoming quite the professional. You might have to support Chuck the way you are going. I’m proud of you. I’m proud of you even if you won nothing.
    Blessing, Mom
