I’m so proud of my daughter Rene, who had one of her art pieces shown at this year’s “Imagination Celebration” here in Orange County! (Her piece is on the bottom left.)
She’s always loved to draw — she does great pencil sketches, and she even has an easel in the garage where she creates with acrylics in the summertime. (I’ll have to show you some of the cool stuff she has hanging in her room!) But this is the first time she’s ever really had her work “shown.” Her art teacher at school helped the kids learn how to mat their work and send it in for competition, and hers was selected among 6,000. It’s such a great thrill to see your creativity on display — I hope it inspires her to do more.
Here are her brothers — even they were impressed:
And here’s Rene receiving her certificate:
I’m sure it’s the beginning of a long love of art. …
Our Nene is so amazing! I do hope she continues with her art. She has such an amazing talent and sense of style!
Way to go sweetie; we are all so PROUD of you!
Wow, that is awesome!! Congrats! Oh, and what kind of car did you buy? I am jealous =)
Thanks for the congrats to Rene! I’ll pass them along. …
And Debi, I got a Ford Edge. Chris talked me into it. First new car I’ve had in 13 years!!!! : )
Congrats on the car! I don’t think I know what and Edge looks like, I will have to keep my eye open. I haven’t had a “new” car in 14 yrs so I know how exciting that must be….see there are several bonuses to having a teenage driver – you have less errands to run and you have to get another car! =)
Congratulations on your achievement and keep working.
As you must be aware by now, Art is 10% inspiration and 90% transpiration, opposite to what many people think 🙂
With best wishes to your artistic development,
