At the behest of my friends in the Dallas, Texas, and Rockville, Maryland areas, I am writing this new Journal entry. They have urged me to share my achievement and joy with the rest of the world, via DeviantArt.
The Texas Sculpture Association held its 25th Anniversary Membership Show at the ArtCentre in Plano, TX. My sculpture, Lest we forget, which is in this gallery, won the First Place Prize.

And a special thanks to Myana for the DD designation for "Keyboard Wizardry" last November.
