Gosh! It's been almost a week since I fired up the kiln!
I was so happy with everything that fired last night. Of course there is always that little blemish that drives me nuts or a bit of glaze that dripped onto a spot that wasn't supposed to, but that's just life. You can't have everything, well at least I can't and I've come to terms with that.

I noticed that I'm still plugging along with my art bragging questions. I'll try to get through them this week, but I won't make any promises.

Question #6 asks:

What career successes (education, exhibitions, collections, . . . ) are you most proud of having accomplished?

Can I simply just say ALL of them? Probably not, but it was worth a try. I'd have to start with my education of course. I learned so much from my professors and my peers, both at Mesa State and NYU. It was an amazing education that I wouldn't trade for the world. And you never know, I just might go back for a masters someday.
I have participated in many group shows, juried and non-juried, and had a couple solo exhibitions as well. All of them have been a learning experience, but I would have to say that the two solo shows that I've had were by far the most successful. They were a lot of work, but I can honestly say, I am proud of myself for sticking to it and creating a body of work in three mediums.
I am unaware of how many collections my art is in since I have been selling my work for quite awhile. I would like to say that I am honored to have any of my work in any one's art collection, whether it be private, small, or large.

These look beautiful! Love the first one!
I'll have to think about your question though. :) It's not easy to answer.

Thanks Natasha! =)
I know, it wasn't easy to answer. I tried not to be vague. There are too many to list individually.
