I have just learned that my painting “Framed in Sunlight” was accepted into the NMWS Spring Show in Albuquerque. It is significant as it is my 5th of 5 necessary for Signature Status with this organization. So what does that mean? It means that 5 of my paintings were “juried” into a show sanctioned by the NMWS. It means that a person demonstrated that there was a level of quality achieved to get in and offers a feather of due diligence – it is an earned privilege, not given away. A note of “well done” important to some, others not so much. But I can tell you it feels good! My paintings will be signed Debra Vance, NMWS. Look for the change in the near future!
