|Drive to Placerville on 49|
|Trails to hike!|
I have not been to Placerville in many years. It was fun to look around. I even went to a little nature park where I did a plein air field study in pastel. I'm a bit rusty, so I am not posting it!
Then I went back to the gallery at El Dorado Art's Council and looked through the window as they hung the show. They were officially closed, but they were kind to let me come in and view our show. It was great! Lots of talent! I have been a member for about 3 years, but this is the first time I have participated since it is a long drive.
Once I got home, a new e-mail message was waiting with the results of the judging! I won a 2nd in the Landscape category for "Willow Creek"!!!!! Whoopee! I am thrilled! (Sorry, the photo is not available right now for me to post Willow Creek - but you can search it by name in my blog and you can see it on an older post).
My friend, Thaleia, won Best of Show! I am so happy for her. She was our hostess who organized the Richard McKinley and also the Lorenzo Chavez workshops in Hope Valley. You can see her beautiful art here: http://www.thaleia.com/ .
