Award of Distinction: Leesburg FL Spring Show

Saturday March 9th was a very special day!  The award reception for the Leesburg Art League spring show was held in the Center for the Arts.  The way the awards are given there is a Best of Show (gold ribbon).  Then the next two awards are called "Awards of Distinction" (blue ribbons) and then after that 3 awards of merit (red ribbon) and I believe several honorable mentions (white ribbons). 

I was really very pleased.  This is my first award at the LAA show.  And there is a sizable cash award that goes with this!!! ($125).  Wow. 

Each winner was asked to say a few words about their painting (which is what I am doing in the second photo).  A pleasant way to spend an afternoon!!!  


  1. Congratulations!!!!! The whole piece is beautifully done including the matting and frame. You can celebrate very well with your winnings! Very happy for you. Sorry I missed it.

  2. Congratulations on a well deserved award!! And, you look great in your photo. I think we are aging beautifully!! Mary

  3. Congrats! You are really on to something with your Zentangle-inspired art!
