I entered this image in our local art association's (Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association; NEMAA) annual Fall Fine Arts Show In September at the last minute, expecting at most that I might be able to sell it. As it turned out, not only did I sell it early on during the opening but I also ended up getting first place in this juried competition of 140 works! I am still in shock as I have never won anything in my life before this. The whole experience still feels very surreal!
