Rewarding in Many Ways
Sometimes they put your piece on the front cover of the program. Sometimes you feel teary, surrounded by artists and people who appreciate the effort, because it feels like home the way few places ever have.
Sometimes you win Best of Show. Sometimes you have no idea what to think and are surprised you were able to put together coherent sentences as responses because you can't believe what's happening because when your name wasn't called in the group you were in you figured that was it.
Sometimes one of the judges says asks to buy your work. He appreciates your attention to detail that you thought no one would notice but that you had to do so that the piece would FEEL RIGHT.
Sometimes you see your parents smiling so hard their faces may split because they know...they know...they know.
