Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day America!
Summer has finally arrived.  Let me catch you up-to-date on a few things these past couple of months.  I thought you might like to know the Schleicher County 4-Hers finished a terrific season with a bang and placed well at the Sonora contest with several first places and the Best Club "Sweepstakes Award" for the second year in a row.  Now that my kids' 4-H activities are finished, I can concentrate solely on art.  Towards the end of May I had some exciting news come my way.  I entered a couple of drawings in an online competition with the Art Renewal Center, and not only was I a finalist (with my drawing titled "He's Ready"), but I was also one of the winners with my drawing titled "Break Time".  It was quite the honor indeed, especially since there were so many talented artists and their artworks to consider like renowned artist, Jeremy Lipking, who won best of show.
