top 112

Some time ago I joined the self portrait contest of Museum Boymans in Rotterdam.
Last week I heard I'm in the selection of the top 112
From more than 1300 participants!

Today I received an e-mail:

"Unfortunately your portrait is not selected for the exhibition.
It doesn't mean your work isn't good or interesting,the fact
you were selected in the top 112 says enough..."

It would have been nice to see little Red Ridinghood
in our own town Museum, (I was close... :-))

There will be a compilation movie of all portraits besides the exhibition.

The opening is Sunday 24 Februari in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
I'm planning to go there!

My dear Nelleke, as they say in sports, "the important thing is not to win but to take part"
I congratulate you, and if I had been on the jury, would have chosen your work!!! :)
Another issue, I have curious to know what you ate the day you took this photograph???????, what's on that plate?????? Ha Ha :)
Congratulations again!!!

Congratulations on being one of the 112. I think they should have picked yours, though. Glad it will appear in the movie :)
