Success in another field


I recently entered another juried exhibit and got all three of my pieces accepted: Two watercolors and one photograph. As frequent readers know my photography, a long time hobby, is just beginning to be taken seriously by me so I had hedged my bets on this one show by entering two watercolors. I seriously thought Stampede would win some prize. It did not. However, Volkswagon Acid Trip, a photograph did. It won first. My sister captured best of show with a black and white photograph she submitted. Interestingly enough not the one that won 1st place in the International show recently.

Volkswagon Acid Trip

She entered that first place photo in this latest show. It had previously won over Volkswagon Acid Trip but got beat out this time by another photograph of hers and VAT by me. Every show and every judge is different.

The really good news is the Binford Sister Act has scored the top two positions in the MVAC Fall Invitational show. Winners Reception is tonight in Angel Fire.

  1. This is brilliant! What else can I say except sister Act II? But it is interesting that different judges look for, and at different things. Personal choice I suppose?

    One can look at movies which have been nominated for Oscars and normally everyone is on the same page when it comes to the winners. But this is something very different.

    Fascinating and I not only love the photo but the title is what did it for me. Describes it to a T!


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
