Aftermath: Art Festival

As it turned out, the Art Festival went quite smoothly, although I didn't get to play much accordion with Nikola and Sara like I had hoped to. This was mainly because serving drinks took up most of our time, even though we had Peter, his cousin Alex, and myself all on the job!
I only had one other person in my age group, and the outcome was expected with so little competition; 1st place for my "German Girl", and 2nd for my "Cooper's Hawk".
The photo contest is always a different story; there's always lots of competition there! This year won 1st and People's Choice with my "Leopard Frog", and 3rd with my "Dragonfly".
Peter won second with one of his Yellow-bellied Marmot photos (they were up on his blog Conjecture Only awhile back). Here are my entries.
"Leopard Frog", 1st Place, People's Choice
 
"Dragonfly", 3rd place

"German Girl", 1st place

"Cooper's Hawk", 2nd place

Your "German girl" drawing is excellent! Is the girl in the drawing after your sister Elodie? It kind of looks like her! I enjoy drawing too, but am not too good when drawing large scale drawings.

No, the girl is from a book with children from around the world. It's my first portrait, and I'm also working on a second of a friends little girl.

I hope you post a photo of the drawing you're working on (of a friends little girl). What was the name of the book you took the german girl drawing from, if you don't mind telling me?

Sure, I guess I could do that soon. The book was "Passport to the World".
