is it a sledge hammer?is it a plane?

a bit of zen

No, it's obasan on steroids!i can officially announce that two works of my Strata series were accepted to the HGA Small Expressions exhibit. It was my work for last year and as i intended to submit it to HGA and the Hungary triennial i had to keep the lid shut.
Needless to say i'm thrilled and it's the second good news exhibit wise of the year. Perhaps i'm on a roll. Now i'm waiting to see if i get accepted to Hungary.Then i'll post some photos here.

A wish though.
i thought the juried work at Cyber Fiber was great and i wrote about it to Susan. The juror took time explaining her choices, something unfortunately infrequent, and i think it was positive feedback for all.
i find it very useful to know the reasons behind an acceptance or a rejection because i see exhibits as having to do more with learning experiences than ego stroking.
My hopes and wishes lie in that a precedent has been established and a trend will follow.

Turning a corner now this is a zen like piece i worked sidetracking from the lace series which is very intense.
Stitching and some puff paint. Oh and some iridescent paint too. As always the Flickr photo in the site has a few explanatory notes.
Can you see i feel elated ?
