I had to leave Hipbone a little early so that I could get to The Mayor's Invitational Gala in Keizer. Once there, I received a great surprise, the Third Place prize for my submitted painting Summer Fields. My painting (and all others accepted) are on display for one full year in the beautiful Keizer Civic Building that houses Keizer's Municipal court, City Hall and the Police Department.
All in all a good day (and decidedly "happier" than today's drawing). I hope you had an artful day too!
