This summer I joined the Sunnyvale Art Club, which is a community group that meets on a monthly basis to watch painting demos and listen to lectures, as well as connect with other local artists. Every year they host an art show at the local library and members can submit a few pieces for the show.
Although anyone in the club can display their work there, the show is judged by a trained judge/artist that we bring in from outside the group.
I'm very proud and excited to announce that my seagull painting won 3rd place in the watercolor category! I stayed and received many compliments from people that came to see the show. It was great.
Here's a link to a better photo of the painting: "Bay-Gull"
