Art Award- First Place!


My gosh, where has the time gone. With starting out in a new job I've just totally lost track of time! I MUST get photos of the puppies again- they are becoming real puppies now! Totter around on wobbly legs, but still sleeping and eating and sleeping, mostly. :-)

I did have a nice surprise this past week- I won a first place award! I attended the reception and got to see some friends I haven't seen in quite awhile and also talk briefly with the judge with whom I had taken a few plein aire classes several years ago-(not at all my forte' unfortunately). Managed to get one shot, altho the light behind us made for poor quality, but not a really big deal- after all it's just me, not artwork!!!

I have the egret nearly completed and just begging me to come and finish... sigh... not enough time in the day.

Carol, congratulations! Can you share a picture of which miniature painting won the first place award?

Congratulations Carol! Which work was it for? Oh, and I forgot to wish you a happy anniversary on Friday. I hope it turned out a good day for you with your test and all!

Thanks Mona and Barbara. I'm afraid I don't have a photo of the piece. It isn't a miniature- as you can see the works behind us are large and I was afraid a mini would be overlooked. As it turns out this judge, Marc Hanson, does know at least something about them so I could have entered one perhaps. Ah, well...
As to Fri. It was a GOOD DAY!!! We passed the exam with flying colors and got to enjoy our anniversary dinner. :-)
