Here are a few more photos of the awards being given at the opening of the Edmonds Arts Festival on Friday. I almost missed being given the award as we were inside looking at the show! That day the gallery was getting crowded and sales were taking place while we were there. The miniature art was given a lot of attention which was nice to see. However, this particular festival does not adhere to the same standards as the Association of Miniature Artists do, so some of the work was much larger and/or loosely painted, which was very different than what I am used to seeing in a miniature art show. My friend, Janie Olsen has some very nice work in this show too. The one I really love is her miniature, Gelert, Before the Tragedy. She has so much detail in such a small space and the dog's eyes and face say so much! Great piece Janie! Hope all of you get to attend this fun show and festival! Remember the Juried Art Show is inside the Frances Anderson Center. Support Your Local Artists!
They didn't have the checks cut yet, so we were given an empty envelope and he was telling us where to go to get it filled.
Yours truly with my work, Finding Time.
