We have been trying to convince Shaun's mother to enter her amazing paintings in our county fair. This year she surprized us by entering. We took her paintings she picked out down for her. Every where we would go people made comments. Even a couple people asked if they were for sale. (Luckily for the family they are not.)
Any way, entered five and all of them placed. I only have pictures of four of them. One received the Sheila Toler award, which is given by Ms. Toler herself. She picks one and only one painting. The picture that is missing was of a bird on a post, with some flowers around the post. That one received the historical award. Another received an outstanding exhibit award and the rest received 1st place blue ribbons. I hope she is as proud of herself as we are.
