The Rio de la Paz Festival and Art of the River Show, "a celebration of the Peace River, its
life and environs" took place at the lovely South Florida State College DeSoto Campus over
the weekend!  What a showcase of talent and fun for all!

I am humbled and thrilled that my painting BY THE WATER took the First Place Ribbon and
PEEK-a-BOO garnered another Merit Award - it's second this year!  Thank you Judge Brenda
Brunderman for these honors!

Both paintings received red dots and went to new homes after the show closed!

In addition to ribbons and cash awards,  gift certificates for a Jack Richeson & Company art materials shopping spree, and a meal at Beef"O"Brady's put the icing on this delicious cake!  You should see me doing my happy dance!

Sincere thanks to the DeSoto Arts and Humanities Council for making this possible!
