Yipee!!! I won two ribbons.. red an blue! Money and ribbons!!!:eek: I was so happy I almost.....well, almost cried. Really! What a wonderful surprise!!
I'm ready to settle down now and turn out some art.
I can tell you the shows and festivals are rough when you're older and having inner hear problems! I could just turn my head and get sick! My husband and son took great care of me though!

Good morning to all! A great way to wake up with all of your congratulations and wonderful support! The awards were on my still lifes. I have been told I am actually stronger in them but the landscapes got a lot of attention also.

The first is one of my earlier "Bowl with Green Apples".
The other award was an Artists Choice on several works, I'll show you the ones that I saw some of them vote on.

I didn't have fininshed pictures of the last two so if you notice the blue bowl being off above the eggs...it was fixed and the urns wasn't entirely finished in this photo:D I've got to get better organized.

Thanks to all!

These are all strong paintings, but there is something so simple and elegant in its earthiness in the bowl with apples. Great win. Well deserved.
