That is terrific June, congratulations on your sale! I was fortunate to be one of the "artist" picks for the January contest here on the DPW. I did not win money, however I was able to place my art at the top of the page for a month. I sold five small paintings. I think the challenges and monthly contest are definitely a way to keep your name in front of collectors.
Once again, heartiest congratulations on your sale and increased traffic! I saw your ferret painting, it is just beautiful!
