Awesome, and congratualtions! That is a big honor. Will it be on display at the conference? Thanks for the step by step link. Very helpful. (BTW, thanks for the note the other week about my painting in the PSA member mag. Appreciate the kind words.)

Thanks guys! And actually, this wont be at the PSA conference... this is for the members only competition, not the one that they have at the conference and stuff... but I can't wait to meet you at the conference Peggi! :)
