Wonderful Award at San Antonio Art League yesterday

A couple of weeks ago I got the little self-addressed postcard with the Award line topped with a "yes." Ooooohh.... That could be anything. I'd entered "Morning Flight." So I had two weeks to wonder. Yesterday Karen joined me at the reception and we picked up the exhibit catalog at the guest sign-in table on the front verandah of the marvelous King William house that has been been converted to the beautiful museum and gallery that it is today. I got third place! Well, it's officially called the Ethel T. Drought Memorial Award. $500. I'll have to find out who Ethel was, for sure.
The reception was just great... refreshments upstairs on a wide verandah overlooking the beautiful gardens, then the awards presentation in the main gallery downstairs. I got to meet a few new artists and enjoy their work on display. On the way out I crossed paths with Sara Eyestone- such a delight she is.
Can you believe I forgot my camera??! Gary Walston, husband of the second place winner, Dona LeCrone Walston, had his digital camera with him and took some shots of me and sent them by email, so I'll post this one. Thanks, Gary!
