The portrait is entered in ArtPrize! I'm really excited about this. Whether I place or not is beside the point for me - I'm just thrilled about the whole idea. And, after I had finished my registration, I realized that it was two years ago today that I started drawing! I drew an eye. One lonely eye....And I was so excited that I actually made Rob look at it. And two years later, to the day, I'm entering an art competition. I'd never have believed it!

On June 1st, I have to start trying to find a venue to host my portrait. And on September 22, the voting begins. It's all in-person voting - none of it takes place online. And voting ends October 10. Last year there were over 1200 entries, and they're expecting even more this year. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens! And now, to start scouting out venue sites!

What did you name it, or are you still thinking that out?

I don't think they have to worry about that. But thanks for the congratulations!

Marilyn, I have a temporary title on it. So far, The Little Beachcomber is ahead among family & friends here in town, and is slightly ahead in the poll here on the board.

SUPER! So excited for you. I understand the fun you feel in this accomplishment. I've been at drawing only 14 months now and who knows where I'll be in a year.
Do you ever feel like there is so much you want to draw it overcomes you??? I feel like that all the time.
Good luck....you have all of our votes!!

Good luck Savannah. We're all proud of you no matter how you do.

Pity it wasn't on-line voting! You'd definitely win with all the support you have here!

Thank you, Maureen! I was disappointed last year when I saw that I wasn't able to vote for anyone online. I couldn't get in to Grand Rapids because I was too busy, and I really wanted to vote for one piece in particular. (It ended up coming in third, though, which the artist was thrilled with. )

Thanks, Gin! Yep! I remember you telling me that you'd only started drawing portraits a little over a year ago. That's wonderful! It must have been so exciting for you to see your drawings become "real"! I'm very thankful for how-to books like the one that you mentioned that helped you! Shortly after I drew my first portrait, I wrote Lee Hammond (the author of the book that introduced me to drawing) and thanked her for taking the time to write it, and for sharing her knowledge with others. It opened up a whole new world to me, and I'm sure it has to many other people as well!
