Being chosen for Best of Show in any art show is just so exciting.
I was particularly delighted to get this award last night at the Manito Art Show in Manitowish Waters, WI. It is one of the most delightful shows of the season in the north woods.
The show had over 200 pieces with art in fiber, wood, sculpture, paint, encaustic, mixed media, and more. Really fun to walk through. The reception last night was catered and had live harp music as well as presentation of scholarship awards.
I also had another piece sell which was a delight as well.
The judge was Thomas Fleming, professor of Art at UW Marathon County in Wausau. He wrote a very very nice review of the painting that I thought you might enjoy reading.
