Attending the Dallas PPA
(professional photographers of america) meeting
that I attend each month, we have lot’s of vendors who give free gifts for
our door prizes! For example, $50.00 printing free from Pounds, Full Color, BWC or WHCC…
and free frames, a gift certificate to an album company, etc. Well, tonight with
Skip Cohen as our guest speaker, we had a few extra really nice giveaways!
They were giving a 500.00 (apx.) scholarship to Texas School
which is the first
week of May. Luckily, this year it is right here in Dallas, at the Intercontinental
hotel in Addison!
They drew one number but the gal whose number it was, had already paid for
her place at the workshop. So, they drew another number and can you believe,
it was 735 my number! how lucky is that… guess God was on my side tonight!
So, this semester I have been taking Painter at Collin College and that is one
of the classes at Texas School that still had a few openings. So, decided to sign
up for that to get some more hands on experience painting photographs! what a
blessing this is, Thank you Texas School and Arlington Camera
for such a nice
donation and gift to me! Above, is a quick rendition of Evelyn, using a little oil pastel
with a very light touch, just enough to look a little like a painting or pastel!
