Hi friends! It is snowing yet again as I type this. You may recall last year I told you of Emerson's achievement in art in this post. Well he has done it again! He has won another Gold Key Award and an Honorable Mention Award in the Scholastic Art Competition. This is a national art competition. There were almost 2,000 entries from our state of Wisconsin alone. It is for grades 7-12. His Gold Key piece will go on to National Competitions for Gold and Silver Medals. This is the painting he won a Gold Key for in painting.
We will be attending the award ceremony at the Milwaukee Art Museum on Saturday. 'Captured' is hanging there already.
I received a special RAK from Donna! She made me a sweet, pink Valentine. She found "Matilda" the poodle candle while thrifting and thought of me. =) She also sent some nice variegated pink floss and yummy Candied Caramel Pecan wax cubes to melt. Thank you so much Donna!
This is my progress thus far on Theotokos.
Thanks for indulging me today friends. I just had to share Emerson's wonderful artistic talent. =)
Have a stitchtastic day! I have thanked God for you today!
Stitching and praying,
