Juror's Choice Award - Breckenridge Fine Art show

Yippee! I found out today that I have been awarded the Jurors Choice award at the 18th Annual Juried Competition & Show at the Breckenridge Fine Art Center. I had 2 paintings in the show and the award was for my still life "I've Just got to be a Cowgirl"

This painting has cowgirls, a cowboy and a horse (ok, its a mule) . What more could you want in a western painting?
