I am adamant every year that the whole family enter something in our two local fairs. First of all, we get discounted (or free) tickets for doing so. Second of all, I think it is important to take pride in your work and share it with others. I LOVE seeing what creative and wonderful things my neighbors have done. I get so much inspiration at the Fair!!!
My husband entered a photograph and got 5th place:
My mother entered this wonderful wreath and got 1st place!:
Noodlebug entered this watercolor and got 1st place:
He also colored a coloring page. He worked on it for two weeks. He didn't really care for all the detail work involved. I'm calling it "Inspired by Picasso." He got 2nd place:
Shelly Massey's wonderful classes that I took last year at ART IS YOU. I got 2nd place:
I really debated about submitting my work. The work is mine and the idea and theme are mine but the construction idea was all Shelly's. I would never ever want to pass off someone else's idea or work as my own. I decided the best thing to do would be to contact Shelly. So, I want you all to know I asked her permission and she gave it. I am so bummed Shelly won't be teaching at this year's West Coast ART IS YOU. She is such a great teacher and I loved her classes so much!!! I am going to submit the other piece that I did in one of Shelly's classes to next month's Fair.
Noodlebug also competed in his very first Pedal Tractor Pull race. It was so fun to see his enthusiasm!!! I just love our little Fair! Stay tuned for the results from next month's Fair!
