Well, Susan and I went to a local art group for their annual Artist of the Year celebration today. Artists who had won artist of the month were eligible to bring those paintings for judging. There were several nice paintings. Take into account the fact that the lighting was not especially good, so any work under glass had a glare, and take into account that the photographer is a bit cockeyed.
Susan really liked this painting of a doll with a flower and shell. It didn't do much for me, but what do I know?
This is a nice vase of sunflowers by a woman I know.
I loved this jazzman.
And this pleased me.
There were others that didn't photograph well. What, these were well photographed?
But this brings me to the highlight of the afternoon. The artist of the year at Coppini Gallery is. . . (drumroll, please):
Yes, the lovely redhead is my Susan. And she won for her painting "Evening Comfort." I am very proud of her.
