First of all: No, my car didn't break down in the ghetto.
Last night was the Hydrant Hysteria awards reception. I found out, much to my surprise, that I won first place in the Professional Artists category! I was so shocked, and honored... There are some GREAT hydrants out there in Downtown Harrisburg!
You can see a bunch of them in JasonTromm's photo set on Flickr:
And more great photos on Flickr from Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau:
I look at all these hydrants and still can't believe that mine was picked. This past Saturday night, I had a dream that one of the women who works for the Downtown Improvement District told me that mine had won. By the time I got to the awards reception last night, I had completely talked myself out of it, just because there really were so many great ones and I thought, "I just painted a bunch of bugs and flowers and things that I like..." I had no idea others would be fans of the bugs, too! :)
Thank you so much everyone who voted.
