"Day's Work" won an award

I wanted to let my blogger friend know that "Day's Work" won an award (5th place) at the Art League of North Florida (ALNF) 5th Annual Member's Exhibit. 
A special thanks to all of those that encouraged me to enter this one in a show.

Of course you have a fan club, I am a charter member! I so enjoyed hearing about your winning fifth, but like the others feel it should have been much higher than that!

Jane should be very proud of her photo, it has spawned so many wonderful paintings.

Vicki,I have just awarded you the Sunshine Award because I admire your art so much.

Wow! Congratulations Vicki! This is a stunning piece! I appreciate your letting viewers see it close up in your previous thread. It really is fun to see the textural qualities of this gorgeous composition! I've never worked with rice paper and batik-style application...sounds fascinating!

Vicki Greene said...

Thanks Mary! You really should consider giving this technique a try. It is very fun and forgiving.
