Neither Lori nor I were prepared to present why we chose the pieces we did for awards. But Lori did offer that we would give a critique or talk to any of the artists about their work after the awards presentation. I'm so glad she did. I've always wondered what a judge is thinking, what they were looking for, how my piece might have fared better, etc.

"At the Barre" will be heading to a happy new home shortly -- purchased yesterday.
And, take a look at my web site's home page for a good look at "The Wedding Party" -- the painting started "live" at the wedding reception at a vineyard this Summer. It's approved and will be delivered to its new owners -- the newlyweds soon.
