I was uncertain about even entering my personal Visual Art Journal into a competitive annual "Spirit of the Rogue" Show. So I was of course pleased when it was accepted into the multi-media show. As time marched on, I received an email that (good thing I was sitting down), my journal entry had received the "First Place" Prize. I was astonished and thrilled. How satisifying to see that journaling can and is acknowledged as a form of Fine Art expression!
