This year I had two entries in the Fine Arts competition at the Nevada County Fair. I received a Third Place for a Nevada County Scene with my Fudenjuce, which is acrylic on a large reclaimed yard sale canvas. It is one of a number of urban landscapes I am planning for the future. Although I received a third place, I was very happy with the result because I was competing across all skill levels including professionals.
I received a First Place in the novice category for my acrylic painting of a boat on Bridge’s Point in Brooklin ME. I will be a novice for one more year if I choose to compete again — then, I move up to intermediate.
