"Winter Closing In," by Sherrie Spangler

I just got word that "Winter Closing In" was accepted into the Peninsula Art League's annual show! "Rainy Day" got the reject letter, but that's OK because that one has some design problems.

I hadn't entered this show before because I thought they were mainly interested in paintings, but the theme this year -- "Outside of Your Comfort Zone" -- just cried out for a piece about the dark Northwest winters. If you're interested in seeing how I made it, I blogged about that here:

The show opens Aug. 9 at the Gig Harbor Civic Center. Hope to see some of you there!

Have a colorful day

I can tell you exactly why that got into the show. The theme and your use of such wonderful contrast. Not to even mention your use of texture and line for interest. Wow, that is really good.

See? I just knew they had to accept one of your pieces eventually. I'm so happy for you - congrats!

Congratulations! Well earned - that is a beautiful piece of art and perfectly captures the feelings of the title.
