Awhile back I said that I had entered some paintings in the Alberta Zone Show. My zone was Central Alberta. In this Zone Show, the paintings are juried for awards and for advancement to the Alberta Wide Show. The show was this weekend. The jurors reviewed the paintings yesterday.
The categories were: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Master. I entered three paintings in the Advanced category. Two of my paintings “First Discovery” and “Family Jewels Series No. 8” were selected to advance to the Alberta Wide Show. “First Discovery” also took the award for the Advanced category!
I think the last time I won an award for my artwork, I was in grade 5. I placed third in a poster contest and my prize was a book – Heidi! I don’t remember what the contest was for, but I still have the book.
