I entered into the Professional Category of the Strawberry Art Festival..
The 'Eye of the Horse took 4th place', and
'Sophisticate' won the Business Owners Choice and a cash award. The Show and Festival runs until March 11th.. then I get to take them home !
Although I've won awards from Art Guilds, this was the first time I'd ever entered a juried show. It only took me about 50 years . Who knew!?
The competition was tough, beautiful watercolors, oils, very few pencil/graphite. I'm truly grateful for these I finally have ribbons to hang in my studio. And I thank all of you who encouraged me to do it.. a special thank you to Tina . BJ
