Best of Show

Wednesday was a very hectic day for me. I had to go to San Angelo to take three paintings to the San Angelo Art Club Best in Realism show. I entered "Peek-a-Boo", "Singin' & Dancin'", and my trompe l'oiel, "Jan Verschoor - War Hero." As soon as I got home I had to pick up the kids from school and take them to Sweetwater for a couple of appointments that they had. From there we went to our Wednesday night church meetings. Then my husband and I had a church leadership meeting. By the time we got home it was after 10:00 p.m.

Yesterday, I went to Lubbock with three of my friends. We got back just in time for the kids to get home from school. We made a trip to the library and then watched a couple of movies we checked out from there.

Today, I spent all afternoon in my craft room working on portraits. When the kids got home from school, I came back over to the house to spend some time with them. I checked the phone for messages and had one new one. It was from the San Angelo Art Club. I received the Best of Show award for "Jan Verschoor - War Hero" and "Honorable Mention" for "Peek-a-Boo." Each artist at this show can only receive one major award and an honorable mention award. The lady that informed me of my awards said that the judges really liked "Peek-a-Boo" a lot. But because I had won "Best of Show", I could only get "Honorable Mention" for "Peek-a-Boo." I am quite thrilled with the awards. I feel very blessed.

Kindest regards,
Nancy Verschoor
