Just returned from the Mesquite Nevada Fine Arts Salon reception
where I won an award there for the very first time!
My poem and the accompanying art piece entitled
Sonoran Soldier won an HONORABLE MENTION!
Here's the artist who selected my poem because it inspired
her to paint a desert scene full of saquaros. Click to enlarge.
This poem by Marie and accompanying art
should have won a prize, but didn't! Judges...
Two of my four poems were selected by artists.
This one is called Progress about Native Americans.
Can't publish them yet as they are in other contests.
Gary was the BIG winner BEST OF SHOW
and $100 with his poem Atkins Diet.
Marilyn always wins something. It was second prize
for her Desert Celebration and accompanying art.
