Here's the second of the pair of paintings that I sent to the Coral Springs Museum of Art for a National Association of Women Artists, Florida Chapter show. I've just learned that I was given a Judge's Preference award for the pair! Painting scenes like this is what I love to do, but it's validated by an award or a purchase. Should we need awards? No. Do we love it? Yes! Helps us to know that we are on the right track. It's sort of like getting a good performance evaluation at a regular job! The colors on the painting aren't quite as green as this photo, but I can't redo the photo until the painting comes back!
