    Default yes, dreams really can come true!

    My friends, I have to share some awesome news with you. My scrimshaw and I have been invited to show at the National Wildlife Art Museum's Western Visions Miniatures & More art show this September in Jackson Hole, WY. This is a dream come true. A couple years ago I decided that I would apply every year for my entire life, however long it took, until I got in. And it only took two years.

    I am thrilled, overjoyed, shocked, somewhat speechless, and I had to share!!!

    Woo hoo!

    -Katherine

    Congratulations Katherine. It couldn't happen to a finer artist or nicer person. The down side is, I expect the show may interfere with your chance to go to the Grand Masters weekend this year:-(

    Cheers,

    Roger
