I decided that the photo of me painting this piece wasn't nearly as good a "headshot" as the actual piece itself, given that it IS a self portrait and all. So I changed it.

So I didn't win anything, but I made it into the Midwest Fine Art Finals. The competition covers the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, & Wisconsin and is open to any artist enrolled in college. (Yes, at almost 37, I'm still in college--though I graduate this May!)
The 30 finalists are listed along with the work that made it into the finals here: 2008 Results
While it would have been nice to win something, I'm honored to have been a finalist.
