The second event was the Fine Art Juried Show that is part of the Wood County Fair. While Registering for the event I noticed that there were several categories to select from, and so I decided to enter pieces from a few other mediums that I work in occasionally. The first had been Art In The Park.
When we went to enjoy our usual favorites at the fair we took a stroll through the Fine Art Show, I was unbelievably surprised to see that I had won a ribbon for 5 of the 6 pieces that I entered. Below are the pieces I entered.
The portrait of my daughter did not win a ribbon, there were a few lovely color pencil pieces it had to compete with, and a lot more drawings were entered than paintings. Much more delightful than winning another ribbon for that pieces was my daughter winning a ribbon for her own work! It was especially exciting to see that my daughter had success in her first-ever juried show! She is now very motived to practice and work on her skills, which is beautiful!
I also want to say how grateful I am for all the love, support, and well wishes by so many! It means so much to me to know that people are engaging and supporting the arts in their community, and I am personally touched for those took a moment to see my work. I am equally blown away by the creativity that is put into the booths that showcase the animals, as well as the canning, quilts, and knitting. Just gorgeous creative work everywhere!
