My painting was accepted in Salon International!

Please forgive me for posting twice today, but the accepted entries were announced today- a day early. Gentleman Traveler was accepted! To see my name in a list with such amazing artists is an incredible validation. You can bet when I got the email telling that the list had been revealed, my face went hot and my hands shook until I could get to the site and scrolled down the alphabetized names to find my own! I whooped. I hollered. I did my silly happy dance. I have a student in the gallery with me today so she got hugged and bounced up and down.
I just had to tell you!
Happy, happy Susan
