Enjoyed  a nice evening at the Alexandria Museum of Art, attending the opening
reception for their 28th September Competition.  There were a variety of
pieces, as you can see, and lots of interesting approaches.  I am always
amazed at some of the creativity and the thoughts of other artists:  I am such a
traditional realist.  My mind doesn't come up with some of the wild
stuff I saw tonight.  I like some of it: I can appreciate some of it; and some
of it, I do not care for at all.  I did not agree with the judging...but I rarely do!

It truly is an honor just to get in this show.  When I saw some of the other pieces,
I am not sure why the judges selected mine.  My two were the most realistic ones there.
And many of the things they selected were similar to their own work...which does
happen sometimes.


The show will stay up until November 21st, so if you are in Alexandria,
stop by and check it out.  Quite an interesting show!
