Today I found out by looking at the Camden News that I have been awarded First Place in the Camden Daffodil Festival Art Competition! I was thrilled to say the least, and my family was equally thrilled and delighted. The piece entitled "Chance of Snow" will be featured on the 2013 Daffodil Festival T-shirts, poster, advertising and website. The prize money will keep me in watercolor paper and paint for a little while, and definitely help with framing costs. I hope that they send a copy of the newspaper, the photos online were great. I enjoyed seeing people peruse all the artwork that was displayed at the Postmaster's Grill. Again, it was just a delightful experience, and friendly people...but it is a long way from home. Will look forward to purchasing my t-shirt and poster next year. Hope the weather next year is as fantastic as we experienced taking the piece down this year.
