This summer I took part in my first art competition - the Strawberry Festival Plein Air competition.
My mom contributed the use of her van for all my stuff. It was fairly comfortable, though the trunk door only covered part of me, so half my body got sunburned.
The subject - my middle school. It seems so much smaller now.
Work in process
The finished piece, minus a frame. Not too shabby seeing as I only had two afternoons free to get it done (artists get 1 week to finish). At the end all pieces are displayed and there is a silent auction. A friend of my mother bought it so at least I got back a little more than the entry fee.
