Tonight was the SAL meeting, and I was thrilled to win a Second Place Ribbon in the Master’s Category of the monthly art contest for my original painting, Casa de Lis! It will be on display at Slidell Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Center for a month. I also got Maison de Memere back, and I got some very positive feedback on it. It’s good to have it back, because I was not ready to part with it yet. I didn’t realize that winning art goes on display for a month, and I had just finished Maison de Memere two days before. Now, it’s sold to my Dad, but I think I’m going to hang onto it for a few days before I bring it to him.
