Kudos to My Favorite Sister!


My not-so-little sister, Emily, is once again a success in the art world! This Saturday, we attended an awards ceremony for the Wisconsin division of the Scholastic Art Competition at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Last year, she won a "Silver Key" for a self-portrait. The painting was on display in one of the galleries on the lower level. This year, she won a "Gold Key" for her painting called The River. This is currently on display in a gallery on the main level of the museum. She is really moving up in her old age. From Milwaukee, her painting will be whisked off to the Big Apple for the national competition.

Wow... impressive! Congrats Emily!
Does she get to go to NYC with her painting?

Unfortunately, Emily doesn't get to jettison with her painting. She's stuck her wishing it well.
