My First Gallery Showing!

Ok, ok, so it was at the fair. And there were a lot of other people's pictures, too. But my pictures were In Public being seen by a lot of people. It's the same thing.

This was the first fair I've entered anything in since childhood, and it was lots of fun. The whole family acquitted themselves well with their entries; I even got a special award! Which was very thrilling until I saw that everyone else had gotten more special awards than me. However, I'm behaving very maturely about it---unlike my niece, who has gone around with her THREE special awards draped from her person and hung in her hair.


So, because I know you're dying to see what I entered, I will show you all my entries.

What's that?

You want me to tell what ribbons I won with each picture?

Oh, I don't know. It seems so.......boastful. I'm really a very humble person....

Well, since you're begging so hard, I guess I can mention it. But only because you asked!

And, my personal favorite.....Category: Western          First place.

It was lots of fun entering. And---let's be honest here---getting lots of prizes. I'm already planning next year's entries, starting with "accidentally" breaking my sister's camera---right after I get my own, of course. Ooops, sorry, that slipped out. I mean, it doesn't matter whether I win or lose, I just enjoy the artistic process and sharing my work with others.

Maybe I can grow some prize-winning maturity by next year....
