Onward, Upward

Despite a headache that’s lasted for a million years, I awoke on Monday with a radically heightened sense of possibility.

And sure enough, good things started happening.

First,  it was announced that my painting, Naughty had been included in the Top 10 finalists for the Mutt Lynch wine label contest. We find out today if I win the case of wine, bragging rights and a trip to Healdsburg, California. Fingers crossed.

Second, author Neil Gaiman posted some photos of my paintings living in his house. In his entry hall, specifically. I am over the moon about this.

Look, Cabal's in the photo, too!

 Third, I finished an enormous painting of 21 dogs and two people and got an order for two more giant paintings. The first enormous painting required a trip to Home Depot and construction of a hoopty workbench.

I’m outgrowing my workspace and LOVING IT.

    Will we get to see the giant painting? I’m dying to know what that could possibly look like. Fingers crossed for the wine label contest. :o)

    Yep, I will post the giant painting once I get a really good photo of it and after it’s been gifted by the client! And just found out that “Naughty” didn’t win the contest, darn it, but here’s who did! http://dreamdogsart.typepad.com/art/2011/05/nancy-schutts-out-of-reach-wins.html

    No offense to the winner but there’s just no comparison in quality, character, use of color, and uniqueness. You were robbed.
