1st Place Ribbon!


This weekend is our Watercolor Club's Show & Sale at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. We award ribbons at this show - and this year I received 1st Place for my "First Blush" painting! You could have knocked me over with a feather! There are over 85 framed paintings (most of which I just swoon over) - and to think that I got this ribbon is very humbling and surprising! I've never, ever received a ribbon for anything! And, I even sold a couple of prints so far (the show ends later today)!
I'm in heaven!
UPDATE - NOON
I just received a call from the show -- my painting sold! This is the first framed painting I've ever sold! Can this day get any better? Well, it's in the 70's and sunny here, so it's just a great day all around!!!

Nancy, I am so very happy for you! Congratulations on winning first place and selling some of your work!! That is a luscious painting (of course, it looks quite autumnal which I love) and well-deserving! A marvelous day all around!
