Accepted: Scottsdale Salon of Fine Arts

Scottsdale, Arizona is full of wonderful galleries, but Legacy Gallery is one of my favourites.  So I'm thrilled to have been accepted into the 3rd Annual Scottsdale Salon of Fine Arts which will be held at Legacy from November 7 to December 31.

Summer's Child
40 x 30
"Summer's Child" was one of 100 pieces accepted out of 1200 submissions.  I thought for a long time about whether or not to submit it because of the size of the painting - framing and shipping become more complex and expensive with size - but then I thought "what the heck" and entered it anyway. Big has its benefits: it makes a statement.

I'm glad that I took a chance!
