And the award goes to...

This year in school (my senior year), I decided to venture out and do an "Independent Study" in art. I love making and creating art. It's just a part of who I am. My main focus for the year was printmaking. At first, I didn't like it at all! But after I had a few projects under my belt, I loved it. During my second semester, I decided to come up with a coffeehouse concept. Once I got all the kinks worked out, I started making pieces that would correlate with my design and and the name. It was a TON of work, but it all paid off. This past weekend, all of my work for the year was on display at my school's Art Show and I entered my original coffee cup print into the show to be judged. And you know what? I got first place! I'm so proud of it, and I'm just elated. Here's a few pictures... The last one shown won first place!

All of my work on display in the Art Show!

Hand-carved print... Linoleum, mounted on wood block.
The award-winning, finished product!

Tomorrow at school I'm going to be recognized and given some type of award for winning the show. Can't wait to see what happens!

Well, until next time...
