The collection was primarily oil but also included 6 watercolors, 10 pastels, 6 acylics, a charcoal, a pencil, a graphite and a blockprint. There were 121 pieces in in total.
Marilee and I arrived when the doors opened. I knew from the postcard all three watercolors made it in and one was a winner. I was overwhelmed to see my painting 'Miner's Falls' won third place -- $2000 prize. In addition, by the end of the evening 'A Quiet Spring Flowage' was sold. It was a great day – WooHoo. http://www.indianaheritagearts.org/indiana/2014show.html
