Chaparral Artists Show

Chaparral Artists Show

First and Third in Abstracts

Each year, Chaparral Artists, a group of artists in Yucca Valley and the surrounding area, hold a judged show at Rainbow Stew for painting.  It’s a small group and a small show – they have a photography-only show next month and many more of their members are photographers.  I took some work in on Friday and was able to attend the reception Sunday afternoon.  I had five entries and three of them won ribbons! I got a second in landscapes for ‘Dark Water, White Wave‘, a third in Abstracts for ‘Night Watch‘ and a First in Abstracts for ‘Sun through Rain‘.  Raini Armstrong took a well-deserved first in Landscapes and it also got Best in Show.  Enjoy some pics of the whole show!
