I'm Entering The Art Show At The Dog Show!

Many of you have heard of the AKC, or the American Kennel Club. This is a national organization for purebred dogs. They hold dog shows every year, many of which are shown on tv (including the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show). What many people don't know is that the AKC also holds a nation-wide competition for dog art. It's called the Art Show At The Dog Show. Top artists compete every year for the grand prize - permanent exhibition at the AKC Museum of the Dog.

This year, I'm entering the Art Show At The Dog Show. It's an ambitious gesture, but I think that I am ready. I am entering four pieces - three pastel drawings and one sepia drawing. I am hoping to be accepted into the show with every inch of my soul. A win would be icing on the cake.

So... Wish me luck! Posted above are two of my entered drawings. I should find out in January if I was accepted.
