What's a mind to do?

"The Call" linocut.

I know I shared the pix before, but when I went to Black Iris Gallery to pick up my work from the holiday show there was this nice little white ribbon attached. Judge had liked my work and took third place ribbon. Been awhile since I've received a would be a very confidant judge that would consider a nude for award placement. Tickled.

I've been working diligently at completing some 2008 goals as well as some 2007 goals. I think in 2009 I will kindly give myself credit for accomplishments and quit exacting so much more than humanely possible.

I've got deadlines looming, and if I make them, I make them if not, so be it. But then again, my dreams and desires will keep the ball workload will exact a reality check. More on goal intents tomorrow...after a anticipated Art Jam!

You deserve it, the award. I've always loved this picture, with all the branches waving around! Have fun playing at Jam. Will be fun to see what you all create. Bet lots of creative energy will fill the air! Live in the moment, too many goals, in my opinion, overwhelming..

I'll just echo what the others have said. Congratulations on placing!

This piece caught my eye when you posted it before, I'm glad to see it, (and you) get recognized.
