Honorable Mention - Woo Hoo!

Lost Canyon, 16 x 12

Please pardon my re-posting of this painting, but I had to share my excitement about winning an Honorable Mention ribbon at the Outdoor Painters Society's Plein Air Southwest 2009 show in Dallas! Hearing my own name announced was a thrilling moment and I am still pinching myself! Thanks to all of you for your kind words and good wishes!


Happy me!

Hi Laurel,

I thought I'd congratulated you. I sure wanted to. But in Florence ever minute I spent writing my blog was
a minute that my husband couldn't be out exploring the city, so I was incredibly conscious of that.

Congratulations! You work is just wonderful and you are beautiful!

XOXOXOXOBarbara
