People's choice and best student art award

Well, four days of votes by the visitors to the Art Show and Sale and we have winners for the People's choice award (favourite in the show) and the Best Student Artwork award. Remarkably, when John tallied up the ballots there was a tremendous number of paintings nominated. There were 33 paintings selected as favourite in the show and 10 for the student work!

Drum roll... the People's Choice award goes to "Obsession", one of my paintings of a fellow fly fishing in the Cowichan river and the Best Student award goes to Linda Campbell's painting of a horse, done in the July art workshop.

Congrats to all artists - there was consistent feedback by the visitors that it was hard to pick just one, indication of the great array of artwork that was on display.

A reminder to those visitors who came to vote - mark your calendars for Nov 21-24 for the Cedar Yellowpoint Artisans tour where you can come and see more artwork. And for those wanting to learn to paint and master a new technique, think about signing up for the Sept 28-29 art workshop here. All students over the next year have the opportunity to display their work at next years art show as well.
