Awards Reception at St. Mary's
Today was the reception for the St. Mary's Summer ArtFest and here I am with my painting and ribbon for Outstanding Watercolor. We were having problems with the camera and you can tell from the expression on my face that I am very apprehensive about Rock and how he was handling the camera. In his defense, I have been having trouble with the camera - I think it is on it's last leg - time for a new camera! He is a sweet husband and so supportive with all my art activities! We celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in December - so he has had MANY years as a personal supporter of his wife's art explorations and all it entails. All in all, it was a great day!
This is a picture of my dear husband, Rock and me standing in front of the painting which received the Honorable Mention award. I combined two photos for this painting - a California vintage truck which my brother Tim took a picture of in California,(a pink truck, by the way), and a barn photo which I took many years ago. I put both photos into Photoshop and did some copy, cut and pasting and - voila! - a unique composition with a totally imaginative back and foreground!
