Merit Award at Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show

Title: Cougar #12
Size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Multimedia Artboard

Today I received a package of my paintings returned from Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show in Alabama. As I was opening the package, a check fell out! It's a prize for my Merit Award!! This little cougar painting won this prize. What a nice surprise! I had no idea because I was unable to go see the show. This was my first entry to this show.

I painted this one back in 2009, hoping to enter some miniature shows, but I never did because I didn't think it was good enough. I'm glad that I did enter it to the Alabama show. :)

Another good news is that one of the miniature paintings I sent to Fredlund Gallery in Florida was sold and the rest remain in the gallery for now. Yay!
