Yesterday the Lakewood Artist Guild held their Fall Art Show.  I was absolutely thrilled to receive awards for 3 of the 4 pastel paintings I entered.   Below was chosen for First Place in the Class 2- Intermediate group that included watercolors as well as all media other than oil, acrylic and photography.   I’m hoping someday they will judge pastels on the same level as oils, but in the meantime, I’ll take what I can get!    Photos of all 4 are below.

This is an 8 X 11 pastel titled Country Living.   Don’t you just love blue ribbons?

This is an 7-1/2 X 11-1/2 pastel titled Big Sur Spring.  The light blue ribbon peeking into the picture is an Honorable Mention.

This is the other Honorable Mention titled Taos Brush  also 8X11

And now the “also ran” titled Meadowland.

It really was a great show and I’m now looking forward to our spring show in 2013!

    i’m no art critic, but I can tell that your work has become more sophisticated over the years. This year’s entries are fabulous. You seem so focused on the main theme and add just the right bits to enhance it.
    Lovely work, good pictures of you, and yes, I do love the look of blue ribbons!

    Thank you, Thom. Your comments mean a lot. Perhaps this will get me out of my “slump”…… ok, ok…..artists are supposed to have slumps once in awhile! :]
