Yesterday, I got an acceptance letter for my painting “Genesis of Survival” to the show "Testimony to Being" at Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, Illinois.
I’m really excited about this acceptance as it is the first time I’ve entered something this personal into a show and it was accepted. “Genesis of Survival” is one of my favorite paintings because I love the detail work done with a palette knife. It's like painting with a flexible butter knife.

The exhibit will be on view from October 15, 2011 through November 5, 2011 at Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. I’ll share more details as the date draws nearer.
Update on Last Post
In my last post, "Lil Wayne: 7 Success Tips for Artists - I mentioned that after watching video tidbits about Lil Wayne with my daughter, I was inspired as an artist. I invited you to stay tuned as I designed a fresh approach to my studio practice.
Here is an update on where I'm at. So far this September, I've:
--approached two business expos to share my work
--approached a retail boutique about having my work there
--accepted two commissions for work
--had a portfolio review via the Chicago Artist Coalition Portfolio Perfect Boot Camp
I hope you too have reasons to feel inspired, encouraged and joyful!
