Yes! I WON !

Judging for the art show was last Tues. Here it is Sunday and I just find out I won a First Place award for my 'Sunrise Dancer'. She had already given me a 2nd place last February in another show.
and a Second for 'The Gypsy Princess.
Both photos were taken at an angle at the show today so they're a little off. Sorry for the glare.
The Graphite/Pencil ' Gypsy Princess' shows up very faded and blah when it really has a lot of dark and light contrast.  
I had volunteered to stay at the building for 3 hours this afternoon, and it was very enjoyable... Show is over .  BJ
