The sky was amazing all weekend and so were the artists of the First Coast Pastel Society! I was honored to be the judge of their Members exhibition in Ponte Vedre Beach, Florida. Wow! I was blown away by the paintings! It was such a challenge to be limited to only 9 awards. So many others deserved recognition. It was a tough job! In the end my choice for Best of Show was also the people's choice so I think we all agreed! Congratulations to all of the artists who entered! Remember that your real reward is becoming the best artist possible!
I also had the honor of teaching a 4 hour workshop on skies. I wish we had more time! It was such a fun and talented group and I had so much I wanted to share! I hope to return someday! It was a great weekend and now I am on my way to Iceland! Stay tuned!
