I entered two paintings in the Puyallup Fair this year here in Washington State. I had been wanting to do this for several years but always seemed to miss the entry date. This year I made it. My wife and I went to the fair to see the paintings hanging with everyone else's and maybe see a ribbon with them. There were some beautiful pieces of work there and I did see one of my works hanging. Alas, no ribbon We looked around and couldn't find the second. I just figured ,OK they rotated one so that someone else could be in a second show. The following day my wife rushed in with the mail..... I'd had something from the fair. Low and behold it was a notice saying that one of my pieces had been sold! Holy smokes!!! My first time in this venue and I actually sold something. Guess I'll be going back next year!

I just had the honor of participating in the 39th National Juried Show of the Assocated Arts of Ocean Shores April 11th-13th. It was really a wonderful feeling to see my work hang with such a talented group of people.
