Master Circle Induction
The biggest thrill for me in my art career was receiving the Master Circle Medallion at IAPS this past week. To receive this honor, a certain amount of points have to be accumulated from being juried into the IAPS international art exhibitions as well as points earned for awards in those shows. What an incredible feeling to be amongst the rock stars of the pastel world! I am in awe to be included!
What made this not only a great honor, but a helluva lot of fun was the camaraderie amongst the honorees. Creating art is pretty solitary. I’m down alone in my studio painting with just my music to keep me company. I also celebrate and do the happy dance with myself when I get into reputable shows and win awards. But, celebrating and partying with the other honorees was such incredible fun! It was a team win and the joy and excitement was crazy great!
