NBAL Artoberfest

The NBAL Artoberfest is the league's only show open to all entrants and the only juried show.  For the first time I got three entries accepted, two photographs and one pastel.  Tonight was the opening reception and I got the surprise of my life.

Lost Maples Autumn, 9 x 12 pastel
 Was I ever shocked.  This pastel not only was accepted into the show, but was awarded first place in the Pastel/Drawing category.

I also got two photographs accepted into the show.

After the Storm, 8 x 8 photograph

and

Walking Down Memory Lane, 12 x 18 photograph
The biggest surprise, this photograph won the Sponsor's Prize.
