  1. I had been entering my artwork in the "Non Professional" category at our local Art Association Shows for about two years, with a fair amount of success. A year ago, an internationally known judge came in to judge our show -- he gave my piece First Prize and then noted that I definitely needed to bump up to the "Professional" category. Before that, I always questioned whether my work was good enough!

  2. I was painting in our local Art in the Garden event. Someone I didn't know at the time came up and said she liked my art work and wanted to know if I did commission work. I told her it depended on what it was. I gave her my card and she called and wanted me to paint her daughters house for a gift. I did and they seemed to be very happy with it. Volunteering to paint for free brought me a nice comm.

  3. Being accepted into art college (this fall!) is by far the proudest artistic moment for me. I've never took art very seriously until about 2 years ago when I began doodling in Geometry class. I did miserably in Geometry, but learned that I really enjoyed drawing. So over the next 2 years I practiced and taught myself everything I know. (I had missed out on any art classes due to schooling changes) Drawing became such a passion that I applied to Moore College of Art & Design and after months of portfolio preparation, they accepted me!
    That has to be my proudest artistic moment -- that even someone self-taught from books and the internet could get a chance at pursuing a career in art. I can't be more excited to get proper lessons and improve my work!

  6. When I was a senior in high school I attended Young Peoples Saturday Workshop at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. I hung a wall at the end & won a scholarship to Moore. When they called my name all the air left my body & I can't remember going on stage to accept my award.

  8. When my art teacher asked me to draw a portrait of his cat with CP.. that really made me proud cause he is a great artist, having won many awards.. :)

  9. I spent an insane amount of time drawing my first self portrait and pushed myself harder than ever during high school. That drawing got me Best of Show in the Region, 1st place in Drawing, a small scholarship, and let me be a participant in the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Summer Seminar. I was happy and beyond overwhelmed because my family was able to attend one of my art shows for once (my then boyfriend and now husband was there too which was awesome.)

    I felt proud because I went beyond my boundaries to a new level and it's taught me to keep doing that to this day as an artist. =)

  13. When I look at my earliest drawings, done back when I was a little kid, and see how far I've come from then to now. It really makes me realize how all the years and years I've spent honing my craft has lead me to where I am now, and inspires me to keep at it for years to come.

  18. A good friend of mine has always been attracted to a certain medieval crucifix in Javier, Spain, which we visited together. It's familiarly called the "Smiling Christ." I did a charcoal drawing of the face and gave it to him as a gift. He was very appreciative.
