Clap for her!

As you read in a recent post, Renae had this piece accepted in the prestigious 57th Annual Art of the Northeast juried show:

Untitled (Ribbons 50605152)

The opening was last night — and her photograph won the Silvermine Community Association Award!

I wish I could express in a blog how proud I am of Renae. Two years ago, she was ending another year as department chair at her college, deciding at the last minute to let the chairmanship (and stress) go and serve just as a professor. This time last year, she began the ribbon series of photographs — and, 12 months later, has had a one-woman show and a piece in a juried exhibition. Isn't that amazing and inspiring?

Renae was born creative, artistic and talented. The difference is, now she now believes in herself, puts herself out there, and balances her work/art priorities. She’s taking risks and reaping the benefits she deserves. She’s a true inspiration — and one heck of a talented artist.

It's because I have such wonderful friends who have nurtured the real me and who are also creative (even Holly who always says she isn't but we all know she is).
