Frog Tea Party

"Frog Tea Party" -- oil on canvas -- 36x36" -- Margie Guyot

"Congratulations!  Your work has been juried into the American Women Artists 2010 National Juried Competition in Dallas, Texas.
The jurors...had a very difficult task to select the pieces that make up this exceptional exhibition. 
Of over 1547 entries ... the jury selected 65 works to be displayed from October 9 – November 9, 2010 at Southwest Gallery.  Since your work was accepted into the exhibition, we hope that you will plan to attend and participate in the activities October 8 in Dallas which include an Awards Brunch at 9am and Artist Reception from 1-5pm on October 9th." 
I painted this last year and entered it into this competition a couple months ago.  Was happy to learn the results!  Will be shipping it out to Dallas this next week.  Thank goodness I haven't gotten rid of all my large shipping boxes!  
The frog teapot and creamer came from a garage sale in my old neighborhood in Farmington Hills.  Then I about fell over when I saw the matching water pitcher up for bid on eBay!  Alas, that really cool "woogedy" glass vase (in the center) is no more.  One of the kitties knocked it over and broke it.  Boo-hoo!  

That's one of my favorite vintage tablecloths.  Really difficult to draw!  But my general rule is: don't panic!  Just slug away and figure it out!  
Although I hate leaving Paradise, I'm considering flying to Dallas for this show.  Maybe I can schmooze and get into a high-scale gallery.
