. . . and WIN SOME!!!

Our local art group, Southeastern Indiana Art Guild, had its annual spring show on Saturday evening, a very well attended show. I thought that this year the art was much better over all. I think that speaks to the group as a whole – the artists are taking their work more seriously and many are showing improvement.

My painting “Engine 5901” took first place in the watercolor division and 2nd place overall – not too shabby!
I was very pleased to see that a former student took several awards and honorable mentions – and she has been painting less than a year! Girl’s got talent!!!
PHOTOS BY MIKE: Once again my personal photographer, chauffer and taste tester did a fine job with the photos – and with sampling every available foodstuff on the buffet tables!
