Lavender Plein Air Art Show

So tonight was the day for me to enter my lavender paintings into the Yamhill  Lavender Festival Plein Air Art Show. Last night I cleaned the glass of my frames I found on sale at Michael's and prepared my entries.
After the judging by Jennifer Diehl was the artist reception and awards ceremony. I got there just in time for the announcements. As they were calling out the Honorable Mentions I heard "Elizabeth Zimmerman" and I walked up to receive the first ribbon/award I've won since graduating in May. My vertical painting "Lavender Field #2" received the award, because it's the best our of my three. After awhile I realized that only eight or less paintings out of maybe fifty received Honorable Mention. I'm so proud and thankfully my cousin(-in-law) was there to witness the occasion and snap a picture of me, my ribbon, and my paintings.
