How fantastic it was to have my three art entries accepted for Orlando Museum of Art’s 1st Thursday, May 1, 2014 Exhibition:”Inside/Out.” This link leads to the story explaining the unusual inspiration and basic steps of their creation. http://bobbimastrangelo.com/MyNews/?p=4040
On May 1st, we loaded the art works and delivered them to the Museum early that morning. We went home to relax. Actually I could not relax. I must admit to being extremely excited inside and out because I thought my art was so suited to the exhibition theme of “Inside/Out.”
When we returned for the Evening Reception, we were pleased that the art was displayed handsomely, museum style. Notice the construction and side detail of the center “Florida Storm Sewer.”

I guess you can say this is my favorite view of the art winning a Blue Ribbon. If I was euphoric for being accepted into the competition, then I was riding high with this award: “Best in Show!” Everyone who wished me luck aided in my good fortune.
