A few weeks ago I submitted three art works to the Bedford, Massachusetts Veteran's Medical Center local competition for the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival and Competition. I found out a few days ago that all three pieces are moving into the National competition. The results should be out in late April. If any of my pieces are selected for first place, I will be taking a trip to Des Moines, Iowa for the festival exhibition. Needless to say, I’m excited. Thank you to everyone that keeps me inspired and motivated.
