Hi Paula,

Congratulations !
With the quality of your works, it's nothing unexpected.
Say, is that related to the original Art for the parks ?
That was a very famous competition and I read that was ended or almost.
Or am I confusing the name ?

Kind regards,

Josť

Thank you all so very much!

Adiro, Yes, it's the only pastel that won.

Josť, Yes, they are related to the original Arts for the Parks. The government took away their funding so many who were involved with the original competition got together and kept it going this year.
