But I am completely bowled over by having "The Lookout" win BEST OF SHOW!
And my "Queen of Swords" win the Pastel Society of Virginia Award!

For the best of show award I received the 78 Masterclass Assortment of Great American Pastels! I'm trying to decide between the McDaniel, Dawson, Carducci or Markle set. What a problem to have!
To win yet another award in the same show for "The Queen of Swords" is also quite an honor.

She's hung right at the doorway entrance of the statewide exhibition at the Hickory Art Museum. I was so excited to see her greeting me there.
I regret that I wasn't able to take the workshop given by the Judge, Frederick Somers. He flew in from Minnesota to judge the show, and will be judging the IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies) 22nd juried exhibition next month in Albuquerque. See his website here.
This has been quite a month for me....and next month I'm flying out to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the IAPS show....can't wait! I'll tell you about that in another post.
