Last night I received the Artist of the Season Award at Jefferson Art Guild's Annual Installation Banquet. During the year there were Artist of the Month competitions at a break following each business meeting. Members voted on the art entries. Each participant received points for participating and more points for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd. At the end of the year, the points were tallied up in order to declare a winner of the Artist of the Season. A Golden Brush, or rather a brush with a gold ribbon, was presented to me. This past, January I tied for Artist of the Month. All year long I participated in the monthly competitions.
