Well I didn’t win a prize at the show. But the thrill of seeing my work up on the wall with my name next to it was slightly intoxicating.
Compared to all of the entries, I thought overall my work was about a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10. Some of the work was phenomenal and some works had a great deal of heart placed in them.
Edited to add this note
On the way home with my work, I stopped into a gallery to look around. I placed the drawing on the ground and started browsing. The gallery manager came up to me and asked me if the drawing was by Robert Liberace. when I told her know that it was mine, but I was a student of Rob’s and I told her about the show. She asked if I won an award. When I told her no, she was surprised and told me that I should have. That comment made my weekend!
