I won!

I just got back from the artist reception for the Amateur Show. Very nice arrangement of all the art and about 50 artists competing. I won Best of Show in Photography for this one:




And Honorable Mention for this one:




And considering I only entered 3 pieces, I did pretty well. Thanks to everyone for helping me choose. I have to have the entries for the juried show in by June 5. The head judge came up and told me the house photo reminded him of Andrew Wyeth's work, "Christina's World" How's that for a compliment? He also encouraged me to enter as many shows as I could afford. OK.

Happy day.

Peace,

Wander

Congrats on winning! Both photos are incredible IMO. I love the perspective on the first, working with the odd angles on the house. The second seems so peaceful.

Wow, congratulations! Their tastes are kind of too traditional, but whatever. I would definitely prefer Oregon bridges (half of them look the same, but still impressive).

Yeah, it's a very local competition and this is farm country so I should have expected it. I decided on the bridge just for some different flavor.

Fantastic! Congratulations. I find it a lovely photo too, and Christina's World is one of my favorite paintings. (I need a print of that some day).

Yeah me too. It's so evocative of the midwest. Even though it was done in New England.
