"Playing Dress-up" in FAV's Top 15%

Playing Dress-Up                             18x24 acrylic
Why am I so thrilled that this painting got in Fine Art Views Top 15% for May?  One reason is because this monthly showcase of artwork is consistently great.  It pushes me to do better and better work just to stay on the same page with the artists represented.  Another reason is that the judge for May was Kevin Macpherson.
When there are many entries (approximately 695, in this case), the FAV jury chooses the Top 15% to narrow down the field of artworks that the judge needs to view to choose the winners.  I may not have placed in the finalist circle this time, but I feel like a winner knowing that one of my art heroes viewed my work in the process!
