The Brea reception was last night!

The International Pastel Society reception was last night! I was so thrilled to haveA piece in the show and some friends that came to support me! The show was wonderful, filled with some of the top pastel artist in the country so I felt honored to have a piece hanging in the show. Thank you Nancy and Pat for coming out to the reception! Randy and Jennifer, my trusty side kicks were there to support me too, as always. They were both so tired as they had been on a 1/2 day fishing trip that morning and had left the house at 4am. Thanks everyone!

The painting that won first place in the show was this lovely seascape called Splash by Jeanne Rosier Smith

Karen Howard and I next to her rose pastel called another splash of color.

Karen and I next to my oranges called Cara Cara after the name of the orange. The book I am carrying is a catalog all the artist received that show all the paintings in the show and their prices. Beautifully done in alphabetical order.

Jennifer making her way through the show checking out the art.

The show was packed with people which made for an exciting night, I also was thrilled to finally get a chance to meet Marie Tippets, Mary Aslin and Maggie Price!
