1st Place People’s Choice Winner!

Working in the Hosta Garden at Art In the Park.

What a wonderful surprise to learn that I won 1st place for the People’s Choice Award at Art in the Park. It was the 5th annual event, and the weather was just amazing! I met so many fun and interesting people. I especially loved seeing all the children walking around with the fairy wands they made. It was also delightful to catch up with so many familiar faces, many of which I have not seen in person in a while.

Tuesday afternoon while running errands in Downtown BG I ran into David, who writes for BG Independent Media. While we chatted about the event, I had no idea yet that I had won. I actually learned by being tagged in a post on FB and connected to the article below. It was such a surprise. I shortly after ran into Jacqui Nathan, President of the BGAC shortly after, whom also gave me the news. I have been very touched by all the support and congratulatory feedback from my friends.

The prize was a gift certificate to the Art Supply Depot in BG. I can’t wait to buy more supplies from Art Supply Depot in BG! I’m pretty sure it is going to be a new Field Sketchbook, which I have been eager to take back a practice in working in weekly. I think I am going to try out the one featured in this post.
