my friend Sherry, a photographer, saw this picture and said "you have to enter this in the State Fair to which I replied "thanks but I'm not competing ever again, I need to focus on making money."-starving artist typical story. Anyway, she went on to tell me that she sent this image to a photographer friend in Wales and she said this friend had the same reaction to the photo-she just couldn't stop looking at the gaze. "Cool" I said and that was it...until the deadline for the fair came up. I was still deadset against competing but Sherry told me "you're entering this photo and that's it." She felt so strongly about it so I did it and my husband told me "why go through the trouble to just put one in the competition...OK so I put in 4 and oddly enough I wrestled with the picture that took 4th. Anyway, as I wait for my prizes and prepare to take Sherry to lunch it occurs to me how important it is to have a support system around you and believe in your work. I didn't take 1st but I competed it in the top level of the competition so it has a lot more gravitas. I am ery proud of this work but "I'll say it again, no more competitions."

    This is a great image!! That is a very hard fair to compete in since people from all over Georgia do. Keep entering! I have won lots and lots there. It is important to have a good support system around you.
