Grebe and Grasses (18x12"), Honorable Mention (photography)
Besides the ribbons and prize money, I rec'd a note from the judge, Lori K. Gordon, about why she made her 1st Place (and Best of Show) choices. Of my piece, she said; "...Foggy Morning very successfully portrays its subject matter as well as conveying a striking mood and sense of place; the technical skill of the photographer was also critical in its selection."

(Update, Jul. 15, 2011; This photo also took 1st Place [photography] in Slidell Art League's "Cirque du Sol Art" show, as well as a Purchase Award from Slidell Memorial Hospital [who hosted the show.])
Thanks to the Lacombe Art Guild for the hard work and opportunity, to the Louisiana Medical Center and Heart Hospital for providing the space, to Lori K. Gordon for the awards and my fans for their support!
