Some great news!

Yours truly won first place in the EBSQ Art's "Repurposed: Art from Recycled Materials," an online art show to benefit Environmental Defence. Half the 'kitty' went to the first place winner and the other half went to Environmental Defence. Jeff McIntire-Strasburg, of www.treehugger.com was the juror. A lifetime membership to EBSQ Art (value of $650 US) was also part of the first prize along with $570! Jeff did a great write-up of the contest here and while you're there, you can browse around treehugger.com - it's an awesome environmental site!


The artwork entered had to be made from things otherwise destined for the trash. For a description of the winning piece, you can click here.
So, I'm now a lifetime member of EBSQ Art, which is a great site to belong to! If you'd like to check out the 'zine article on the contest, you can click here.
