Raffle Winner Announced

You won't be surprised that I didn't take any photos at the Bastrop Fine Arts Guild Gala/Artful Afternoon will you?  I have a one track mind in my old age.  I was intent on selling raffle tickets!

We had a friend take a phone photo as we left.

"T" and I as we were leaving.  I had to push my hat back, I couldn't see anyone taller than me when I was talking to them.  I do not like wearing hats!

I bought two "garden" hats at Walmart and then added the ribbon.  I leaned toward the stripe but was talked out of it. 

The afternoon was really lovely.  There was plenty of food, wine, beer, and soft drinks.  I stuck mainly to chocolate covered strawberries as I am gluten sensitive.  Pretty healthy, too.  Heh, heh.

There was a good crowd and the live and silent auctions went well.  I think there was a good amount raised for the new art center.

Deborah Johnson was the winner of the raffle for my painting. Congratulations!

Pastel on Pastelbord in gold frame
14 x 11 inches, value $400

Thanks to all that support the arts here in Bastrop. And as the saying goes, "A good time was had by all!"

you made the right choice with the ribbon hat, even if you couldn't see anyone ;) goes well with your outfit :)

Jennifer, thank you so much! My normal uniform is a sweatshirt and jeans.

Last time I had to wear a hat (to a ladies tea)I put a pink ribbon on my straw cowgirl hat.

My art buddies (oops, I accidentally had a typo and typed biddies - some truth in that)each bought a roll-up straw hat that fits nicely in our art bag. I never remember to take it.

Bag Blog, great idea! I don't have a cowboy hat anymore. Boo, hoo. I can use these for painting now. I usuall use my old Tilley hat for painting. It rolls up nicely and has a string to keep it on in the wind. If it is that windy you can't paint anyway, though!

Jennifer, always good to be comfy when working!
