FIRST PLACE PRIZE


Well, I didn't sell any paintings at the Perrenoud Ranche Art Sale this weekend, but then, neither did most other artists. The weather was the first good weekend we have had in a very long time, and people were probably trying to get in family activities before the snow flies. Very few people attended... oh well...

However, I did win 1st place with my Pumpkin Pecan Pie!!! Not only did I get a 1st place ribbon, but I was also given this lovely pie plate! So - there was an unexpected bonus for me at the end of the weekend. I will have to try making that pie for my family. I wonder if they will like it as well as the judges did???

Congratulations! I'm not surprised. I knew I wanted a bit of that pie when you first mentioned it.

Congrates on your award winning pie. I just love pumpkin pies.....so a pecan variation must be even better. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Keep up the great work you are doing with your art students. A lot of kids have great potential if they get a chance to develop their artistic & creative sides. Your giving them an outlet to do so with your own skills and guidance.....Kudos!
