My favorite pet portait artist Angela Elledge won first place for the Works on Canvas category in the Unconditional Love 1st Annual Pet Art Show in Irving today. I was tickled pink to be rubbing elbows with this celebrity whose award-winning painting "Mocha Rocks" sat in my living room for few days before the show where I could admire it before delivering it to the show for Angela.

My other painty pal Judy Mackey was also a big winner this evening, for her portrait "Bull". Judy won the Asel Art Supply Award of Excellence for her work and I got to accept the ribbon on her behalf! *flashbulbs popping, paparazzi everywhere* Judy's gigantic ribbon and gift certificate are on my mantel. I promised Judy I wouldn't spend all her loot before she is able to pick it up, but I might have to pin her sparkley ribbon on my T-shirt and prance around the studio with it on for a bit, just for the fun of it.

I am so proud of my painty lady friends, Angela and Judy. You can see their amazing and awarding winning works on their blogs. Please join me in congratulating these talented ladies!
