Best of Show and First Place

In the August Gallery competition my painting “Some Gave All and the Rest Gave a Whole Heck of a Lot” won Best of Show. I was so excited as that was my first Best of Show win. This is a 14″ x 11″ (matted to 20″ x 16″) watercolor painting of MY uniform with my top three medals (Joint Service Commendation Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, and Meritorious Unit Commendation Medal). For those who don’t know I spent 17 years in the U.S. Navy.

So, I entered the paintings from my last post into competition yesterday and I’m happy to report that my “Golden Koi” painting won 1st Place!

  1. Well done Tandy, you deserve it. You did a great job on your uniform painting (and 17 years is a looong time) and I just gotta love the Koi. He looks as if he might jump out of the water at any moment. Congratulations!
