Yesterday was dreary and raining. Pie and Sovereign were turned out in the misty rain all day, but there was no riding for us. I missed my time with them. After teaching my Humanities class I found out some exciting art news that cheered me up and made the rain clouds vanish - my painting, Smoke, above, has been accepted into Pennsylvania's Art of the State for 2009! There were over 2100 entries and 157 were accepted. I am so thrilled that I don't think I will even notice today's rain!
