How I got into my first show

It was yet another moment of curiosity that led me to showing my encaustic creations for the first time. I knew about the TEXASWAX/Dallas group through Deanna Wood at whose studio have been working for the past year. One day this winter, I went to look at their website: http://texaswaxdallas.blogspot.com/ There I saw a post about the Bedford Gallery, in Walnut Creek, CA. They had a call for entry for their national show. I decided to give it a try, out of curiosity. I just wanted to give it a try, get the experience to submit to a show… Well, little did I know! When I received an email from them saying that they accepted all 3 of my entries, I was pretty shocked, speechless. Then there was a moment of reckoning: I had gotten into my first show! !

And what a show! http://www.bedfordgallery.org/default.htm

Here is a picture with my monotypes in the middle (white frames)

And here is an other view from a distance. I find it interesting because the pieces in the foreground (and fish on the wall) definitely reference my work, wich is inspired by standing before the sea in Mexico. A coincidence? Probably not.
