The Robin

For most of you it's fall and not robin time but I couldn't resist painting this one from a photo on JWJarts   an art forum/website.  The photo of this robin was taken by John who has a way with the camera and a pencil. BJ

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
