Paintings Ready For Fair!

Sorry for the blurred pictures but it was the best I could do without a tripod. They look much better in person than here but I am very excited/nervous about my fair entries. The requirements are that they all be framed so specifications and the entry forms had to be completed weeks ago. The judging takes place in 15 days.

Blue Hydrangea Oil Painting to be entered in "floral" category. I could submit up to two floral paintings and will be competing against all professionals and semi-professionals. Last year my sunflowers came in first place.
I think I am the only one who likes my red roses. This will be my second entry in the floral division and I do not expect to win any ribbons because of the lack of enthusiasm from others. I wish the picture weren't so blurred.
There is a category for our county and because this mission is in my county, I will be entering it and competing against all professionals, semi-professionals and amateurs in all divisions. I hope they get it with the reflection of the mission in the glass door.

This is one of two paintings that I will enter in the amateur division. This was the second painting that I ever did and I am still proud of the reflections in the apples. This is also the first painting that I set up by myself.

This is my favorite painting so far and it will be entered in the amateur division. I will be very disappointed if this doesn't win anything. It took me a long time to complete and I am proud of the results.

Sheesh. I finally got you in my Bloglines, my dear, and I am thrilled you are painting again. Nothing like the spirit of competition good and bad. You're putting yourself out there and that is to be commended.

I have to think your door would win. It's such a specific category and it is a gorgeous depiction. You have such patience.

For your florals, where the cool blues are calmly still, the riotous reds are running rampant. Perfect characterizations.

I can't wait to hear the results!
