State Fair Winners!

It's that time of year when I head to the Utah State Fair to see giant 

vegetables, consume crazy food and enter the fine arts show.  

Several of my students entered the art exhibit along with Lucia, my 
studio mate.  It was fun to walk into the Fine Arts Building and see 
that we had earned ribbons. 

Lucia won first place in the Professional Division for her painting, 
"Holy Cow."

I won fifth place in the Professional Division for "Seven Heart Rocks."

Pam McCullough won the Shirley Venus Excellence in Art Memorial Award" award for her painting, "Egret" as well as a three month membership to the Intermountain 
Society of Artists (ISA).

Jackie Lalor won an Honorable Mention ribbon for her portrait of a Vietnamese 
woman, "My." She also won Best of Show for her sculpture, "Strong Girl."

It can be a little intimidating to enter a work of art at the Utah 
State Fair but you will never win a ribbon without entering a piece. 

It's worth the risk!


  1. What a beautiful painting! I'm going to fair tonight and I'm so excited to see your beautiful picture. I miss your class!

    1. Hey, June. I just figured out how the comment section of my blog works. Now that I see your comment I will respond to you. Believe me when I say that you are creating the most important work of your life - your girls! You'll have plenty of time to paint later...hang in there and continue to be a great mother!
