I won 1st Place at the Western Idaho Fair!!!

 This is me!!  Elated at the outcome of this competition!

 Isabella, so excited to see herself hanging in public!

 I love this little family of mine!  They are so supportive!

My inspiration!  

Wow, what an experience this was!  I was shocked to walk in and see my portrait hanging front and center!  And to see a first place ribbon on it, well, I can't describe my feelings on that.. Okay fine, I was HAPPY, EXCITED, PROUD, I feel SUCCESSFUL, what an amazing feeling!  I know it's just the fair, but it feels so great to have others love your work.  And it was cracking me up, because we were getting these pictures next to the painting, and people were standing around watching, and talking to us about it.  We felt like celebrities!  Are you cracking up as much as myself right now??!  We were stopped out at the rides a couple times too!  I just can't believe the publicity this gets your art work.  SO awesome!  Well, thank you friends for all your encouragement and support in my journey with all of this.  It is so appreciated!  Have a wonderful weekend!
