VERY EXCITING NEWS!!!!

NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY

 That's me with 3 of my entries at the SUCCESS SHOW at the Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery!!
 
Yes this is VERY EXCITING NEWS!!!!  On the weekend my work was juried by the Federation of Canadian Artists and I was awarded Associate Signature Membership.  That means that I now can put AFCA behind my name, jury for the Federation shows and most of all my drawings have been recognized by a National Art Group.  I can hardly believe it.  Part of the process was to submit 10 images digitally as well as 3 originals.  The originals now make up the SUCCESS Show that runs at the Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery on Granville Island,  from March 12-24.  It is also on their website if you would like to see the show.  http://artists.ca 
I do need to thank my family and friends as they have been subjected to looking at my pictures over and over again, picking their '10' as I try and decide what to enter. They have also been very patient with my ups and downs as I worked my way through the process.  My cousin suggested that Steve should be able to put SSAFCA after his name now. (Spousal Supporter to an Associate Signature with the Federation of Canadian Artists)  I think both he and Rusty should definitely get something for all their special encouragement and  support. Also, I want to thank all the supporters of Art by Wendy as they have done a lot to encourage me and keep me pushing to improve my work. 
A big THANK YOU to all of you and Have a great day!
