Best of Show!

So I entered my angel in the Bountiful Davis Art Center's Show. They had called me to let me know that she had been accepted into the show, but they didn't say that I had won any awards, just that I should try to make it to the opening of the show. I figured they had said this to all the artists that had been accepted into the show so I didn't really pay too much attention to what she had said.

Here is a photo at the awards ceremony, I was happy with the way they displayed her and I think the lighting in the gallery is pretty nice. She is right as you turn into the main gallery I was amazed!

Here is a shot of her on the pedestal. You can see the ribbons that she won, the big one is the best of show and the red one is for my sister Denise Maisak winning 2nd place in the needle work category for the costume. You can check out here flicker page here.
They pinned up her dress in the front to show her sculpted legs and the shoes that I made. I never really liked her legs so I can't say that I was really thrilled with this, but I was just happy to see her in a show.
I was overwhelmed to get Best of Show and also to win some award money for this show. I have to say it felt pretty nice to finally get a bit of recognition for my art. I hope that this is just the start and more will come!
