St. Mary's Art Fest 2011

Outstanding Watercolor Award
"Pretty in Pink"

Third Place- Overall

Honorable Mention

Close Friend, Cindy Staples a talented potter, photographer and watercolorist...

This afternoon was the reception and awards ceremony for the St. Mary's Friends of the Library Art Fest.  I was honored to receive the Watercolor Award, Third Place and an Honorable Mention.  How blessed I am to be able to be recognized for doing something I love so much.  The awards are great, but they are the frosting on the cake - a delicious cake that tastes wonderful even without the frosting.  Many thanks to the Friends of the Library for a wonderful day.

Dee - Thanks so much for you comments - they are really appreciated.
Now a question for you - what do you use to melt your wax for your watercolor batiks?

Dee Doyle said...

Parafin wax from the canning needs aisle at the grocery store! Come to my workshop! :-)
