I just clicked "Send" on these art pieces, submitting them to the Juried Art Show through the Gresham Art Committee. I was hoping to have more time to work on the peacock painting to give it some sparkle and shimmer, but the deadline is nearing. The hope is that both pieces will be accepted and well received by the curator and the public. I will find out in just a few weeks if I've been accepted and can display my work in the show. I hope, I hope, I hope!
