This pastel painting, "Brook Flying" has been posted before. Last year the painting did not get into the Northeast National Pastel Exhibition. I submitted the painting again this year and it was received into the show and won the Kelly Weal Memorial Award. The lessons learned -- Entry into a juried show is usually based on the judgement of just one person. If you believe a piece of work has some merit, persist. Someone else may see the same elements of merit.

This is a portrait of my granddaughter, Nya, as she heads to third during a T-Ball baseball game. Nya was 6.5 years old when I took her picture heading to third. This was her first experience with organized sports. The painting was done in acrylic on gessoed watercolor paper and measures 21" x 28.5." This painting was posted earlier and then substituted with the better picture below.
