star Winner!

I changed the title on this to HIGHLAND MAJOR, MINIMUS because I felt like the more interesting the title the more chance of stopping people!
And apparently it all paid off because I won FIRST PLACE in Pastels at the Arizona State Fair!

I just received the acceptance notice in the mail with some cryptic numbers, like a "1" in the column that says "place/ribbon". Since I am demonstrating down there tomorrow, I called to see if that was the vote or an award and I did indeed get first place in pastel, fifth in oil and an honorable mention in watercolor.

Good year for entering contests! Now, when the commissions start, I will relax and buy some clothes that fit!
Because some people have four legs.

Congratulations! Well deserved. I love your work and you have grown so much over the past couple years. This is a beautiful piece BTW. I just found it today.
