Best in Show















My painting The Stream at Leetonia (see Dec 08 blog entry) won Best in Show this past weekend at the Central New York Art Guild show and sale.
This show' sales and attendance was very good, and although I did not sell any of my paintings, several members did.

I was also happy that one of my paintings was shown in our local newspaper for promoting the show. I got a call before the show opened on Saturday from a previous customer who had seen the pic and had remembered my name. She showed at the event, and considering that the show was several miles away from the city, that left me with a gratifying feeling.

The painting is great, showing a misterious ambiance and a convicing perspective.

Elaine, Donna, José, and Betsy, thank you!
I was told after the show, that a lady had inquired about the painting that appeared in the newspaper because she knew someone who lived on that road! It's nice when someone recognizes a place I've painted.

Hey Adriana! So happy to see your blog and artwork. We took a little workshop together with Linda Abbey last year-I have some ideas for plein air locations in our area. You can email me if you're interested.
You have beautiful work!
