Honorable Mention ...

I am thrilled to announce that my painting Almost Home was the first oil painting I had ever entered into an art show ....

Honorable Mention, Almost Home, 24" x 36" Oil on Canvas, © 2013 Nancy Van Blaricom

and it won Honorable Mention. I couldn't be happier.


When an artist enters a local art show... winning even a small award can be very encouraging, especially if they are new to a medium. It makes us want to continue to work at becoming a better artist.
