I'm thrilled --

Two of my pictures have been accepted for an art exhibition, "Works on Paper," at the Santa Cruz Art League!  I decided to go ahead and put in an application, even though I felt I had little chance of getting in -- they do art, not photography. 


When I got the letter in the mail, it was very thin, and I thought, oh well, it's a rejection.  But it wasn't!  I couldn't be more thrilled.


These are the two pictures that they accepted.  I have to have them very nicely framed!  Yippee!

They both create SUCH a different mood! Just gorgeous. BTW, I'm mailing the poetry book tomorrow... boy oh boy, am I a procrastinator! Actually, I have one shelf that is piled high with "save". It was at the bottom. So sorry!

That is so fantastic!! According to the art class I just took, this is definitely art - not that we had any doubt! Good for you.

I definitely think it's art, but some arty types question it -- but evidently the jury agreed with me. Thanks, everyone -- I'm very excited.

Margaret -- no problem, but I'm looking forward to it!
