Country Fair King

As promised here is a pic of one of the many award winning pieces I submitted at surrounding country fair. Yes I did do well but I never thought i would have such an outstanding show compared to others. From what I was told is that there were a few teens that would have whooped me good artistically.
I would expect nothing less. As time moves by, the standard of art and pressure young people face, they have no choice but to bring their best game. Lucky for me, I was in the adult catagory, where other real pro's are just to busy to square off with me. After two fairs and several judges the only piece that earned a double first is the one uploaded here. The others alternated between 1st and second and all were cash wins which was nice. The kids now have a small college fund.

What really made this great was my boys wanted to parade around with the ribbons. It made me blush and proud that they , my boys, at such a young age are able to share in the experience and enjoy the success with me.

Horticultural and Creative Arts? Hmmm.... Are they implying that we creative types are also proficient with the use or nurturing of the funky green stuff? I thought you lived in Alberta, not BC. :D
