The Alpha Rho Tau show opening last night was AWESOME! I took first place, blue ribbon for my Topiary I worked on all summer long. So very, very excited. I love that I saw the opportunity of a painting when I took the photo, free hand drew it, and then made it appear on canvas. It was a huge challenge and paid off.
PLUS...I took honorable mention in the same category for my little black-eyed susan painting. What's funny is I spent all summer on the topiary yet the flowers took less than 30 minutes. You just never know and I love both of them. The black-eyed susan was palette knife exclusively with my 4 year old granddaughter underfoot and the topiary was brushed for weeks while painting with friends.
