Say whaaattt?

At about 1 o'clock in the afternoon I receive a very important email. My painting Balas Fuertes( strong bullets) got into the Watercolor Magazine! I. Was. In awe. For those of you who may not be artists and don't understand the grandeur of this event, it's as if I made it into the vogue magazine.

Thanks to the Illinois Watercolor Society for picking my painting to be on the page, I feel truly honored. This year I feel as though my art career is headed in the right direction and I cant feel more sure of what I want to do in life, to paint and be among those that do the same. This is a steppig stone for me, a major one.

Details: the painting is on page 21, on the summer edition of the watercolor magazine in the noteworthy section.

Just whoa.
