What a wonderful surprise I received in my inbox last night! This little painting won an award at the Newton Fine Arts Small and Miniature juried show. I was so excited, I was running and yelling all through the house like a crazy woman! To make matters even better, it was a cash prize!
It was a second prize, taking second to a painting I loved. The painting that won first was of a cat, leaning over a rock to look into a pond. I didn't mind taking second place to that painting at all because it was lovely.
