My painting of a Creole Dancer inspired by some photos in Jilly's Menton Daily Photo blog received the First Place Award at the Rogers Art Guild 2010 Spring Art Show & Sale today! Woooo hooooo for Jilly and me! See the original posting here.
Trust me when I tell you that the painting looks MUCH better in natural or "good" lighting. The lights and yellow walls made everybody's photos look funny.
This is my first award in a independently judged "real" art show and I am VERY VERY pleased to have received this prize considering the other works in the show.
