"Smoochin'" Awarded Second Place - 35th Annual Arts of the Terrace - Mountlake Terrace

Friday evening we went to the opening of 35th Annual Arts of the Terrace Festival in Mountlake Terrace.  What a fun time! I was very pleased to see that my entry, Smoochin' received Second Place in Miniatures and my entry, More Salmon, Please was awarded an Honorable Mention! That was a BIG surprise!!  My friend, Janie Olsen was awarded Third Place in Miniature for her lovely work,  Butterscotch, from her Rabbit Series.  I love her rabbits!!  We were both surprised to see that the First Place in Miniatures, Jade by artist Valencia Carroll, also received Best in Show! Congratulations to Valencia Carroll!  I don't have a link to her work, but you can go to the show and see all the wonderful pieces in the show!  I thought this years show was even better than last!  All work is for sale and make wonderful, lasting gifts.  It will bring happiness to you for years to come and you get to support your local artist!   Map and directions follow in post below.

It's autumn and that means it's time for the 35th Annual Arts of the Terrace Festival in Mountlake Terrace! I am so happy to say all my work submitted was juried in!  I also got an email that my miniature, Smoochin' received an award!  That makes me even happier!  This is a fun show I always look forward to participating in.  Last year I missed submitting to the show due to sad family issues, but I'm so happy to be back this year!  My three miniatures in the show are, Ol' Blue Eyes More Salmon, Please, and Smoochin'. Also selected, my new drawing, Special Delivery, and the small works acrylic painting, Snowy Visitor.
