Midland Texas Art Show

The opening of the Midland show was last night, and we got lost, but got there just in time for the awards. I hadn't seen the program or looked around so when the President of the college called my name for Honorable Mention, I was so shocked. Not only was there a ribbon, but also a nice check to go with it! I wasn't really sure how this would be accepted in the art world because there is VERY little acrylic paint on it. The rest is torn up magazine pages. It is such fun, and very addictive.

West Texas Watercolor Society Show

'Garden Chair'
Our fall show started last week, and this painting got a 2nd place.
This chair is in our yard by the pond, and I normally keep some sort of flower on it.
There is beauty everywhere you look! Even in your own back yard.
