I entered my art in the Hillsborough County Fair. 
 The Category was Professional Watercolor  and also a pencil piece .
It opens tomorrow and the judging was today.

I'm so pleased to say that I've won  2 First Place Awards,   one for Watercolor, Batter Up!  A first place for pencil/ graphite, 'We're Home' in the Category called Graphics, and a second place for  'Hummer on a Coneflower'.. also watercolor.
    Yes, it's very encouraging . BJ
