Wow - thanks so much for all of your support.

Deborah - my brother thought it was rather sexist that a woman's painting group awarded me for a painting of a man. LOL

Anyway - it feels good to be honored. Thanks. Barb

Yeeeeee-hah! Congratulations!

For at least two centuries, men have awarded men who've painted scantily clad women, so why couldn't women award a woman painting a man? :-)

Great painting, and well deserved award!

You are all so good for my ego. Thanks -if a photo gets taken I'll share it.

Just had my eye dilated for an eye exam and I'm blind as a bat - and the reception is tonight in a few hours.... hopefully no one uses a flash on their camera.

thanks Sandy - and congratulations yourself on the Pastel 100 pieces. I just went to your web site and WOW - you are a gifted painter!

Love the detail in the cow and the sheep - fabulous! How did you get them to pose for you?
