Earlier this year, I told myself I would finally enter the East Hants Fine Arts Show. That was a goal I had set, a promise I had made, a resolution. I had wanted to enter the show several times, but each May I found myself just standing there, admiring the art work of other artists while my children proudly displayed their creations.
This year was different. I not only entered, I submitted three pieces to be judged. Now, don’t get excited. I knew I wouldn’t place, wouldn’t even get an honourable mention. There are simply too many great artists who participate in the yearly event.
So last night I came home from the awards show with no ribbons, but did return with the satisfaction of knowing I had entered an art show…and three children who are now all award-winning artists.
