With just ONE day to go in the matching phase, a venue contacted me and offered to host my painting in ArtPrize this fall!! After tomorrow, nobody can match up with a venue - so I had pretty much resigned myself to the idea that I wasn't going to be able to exhibit in ArtPrize after all. I'd received two dozen emails from venues (whom I'd contacted) saying that they thought I was very talented, but that I just wasn't "edgy" enough for them. (And I have to admit that it's true that I'm not. The only time I'm edgy is when I've misspelled a word and I'm trying to edit before Fife can see it. batEyes )

Now, if you'll excuse my excitement for just a moment: YIPPEEEEEEEE!!!!

AHHHH!!! I'm so happy for you, Savannah!!

In my book, "edgy" is the same as "pretentious," so if they say you're not edgy, I'd take that as a compliment.

Congratulations!!!

Years from now, that just-made-it-under-the-wire drama will look really cool in her autobiography.

Thanks so much everyone!!

I had such an adventure just trying to print off and email in the signed hosting agreement! I had to leave the house by 10:00 and by 9:30 the computer was still frozen and the printer wouldn't work! At 9:45 a rep from the power company stopped by and told me that they'd be shutting off my power for two hours so they could change lines over. I *almost* decided just to send the papers in when I got home from work, but the power rep said they'd wait a half hour so I could get it sent in. I'm SOOOOO glad that I didn't wait! When I got home for lunch, I decided to quickly check my emails, and when I did, I had a note saying that I had one more step to do before I was OFFICIALLY in, and if it wasn't taken care of by 5:00 today - Michigan time - that I wouldn't be allowed to have my painting in. If I hadn't checked the email till I got home from work, it would have been too late! So anyway.....There's my excitement for the day.

Oops! I missed several posts, and I'm not sure how I did it! I'm so sorry!

Christina, thank you!

Thanks, Pam! Me, too!

Rob, I think I mentioned this to you already, but over 200 other people had basically the same experience! Last-minute frenzy was quite the norm, apparently!

I had a couple of PMs asking about ArtPrize, and thought I'd post the link to my profile page if anyone else wants to see what it's all about.

I. Can't. WAIT! I'm so excited about getting to take part in this!

Savanna, I checked out your Picasa site and saw the portraits you did. That's some damn good work girl.
