(16x20 Oil) "Mimosa Tree" was once juried into the Pensacola Museum of Art, then stayed at Orange Beach- Merrill Miller's Interiors. The paint has been dry for 2 or 3 years but it's just now a "prize-winner" at the Pensacola Interstate Fair!
When it's time for a competitive show, you never know what to take. Since entering these in the "Art Study Club" show, I've received so many positive comments on the "Beach House"- locals recognize it, last night someone said a Levi's commercial was filmed there. My official judges picked the Mimosa.
The viewers get to pick their favorite for "People's Choice". It's interesting to observe public response, see who's attracted to your work, before they know it's your work.
Then... my personal reward for seein that the Fair Show ran smoothly- Sweet~confectioners~sugar! I know, it's hard to top Fine Art & Funnel Cake, all in the same venue!!

Thanks to all who entered work.
All of our individual styles are being admired.
And, the Show looks great as a whole.
Thanks for the long and honest deliberation of the Judges:
