Joining in with Paint Party Friday

This is one of my entires for the Dorset County Show which happened on the first weekend of September. It is about time I told you how I got on.
In order to get a free ticket to the Show one needs to have quite a few entries, and as you are only allowed two entries per class, there is a variety of Homecrafts to cover
The last three on the list were the photographic classes
My two ‘pictures in any other medium’ were these beach clean art paintings
I arrived early in the morning to put all my exhibits out, so there were very few other entries there.
It seemed we were not supposed to put a title or any note about the painting, although no-one really knew.
I got to the show at about midday, eager to see the other entries and if I had got any prizes or comments from the judges. Mine was the only abstract painting in the category.
Here is the winner
Now I look at this again it looks more like pastel to me rather than oil or acrylic, but maybe it is oil pastel.
And our painting?
Here it sits with it’s competitors, no we didn’t get a prize, but it really was fun to enter. Thanks again to everyone who joined in with the creation of this painting, which I love!
Here are the first and second in this category
And some Commended ones
I did get a First for a crocheted wig!
The judge wrote: Brilliant idea. Good even crochet. Nicely distributed curls and combination of stitches. Well done.
And a Highly Commended for the knitted wig
Judge’s comments: Good even stitching. Puffball effect well thought out.
And her comments for the blue Wavy Wig: Nice idea. Well chosen stitches, well finished.
(You can find patterns on my Ravelry page or Etsy shop.)
The winner of the knitting class was a massive jacket, I expect it is snug to wear.
It is interesting to see the variety of things entered in these categories.
I also got a Highly Commended in the portrait category for a photo of my son and his family.
The weekend was a huge success for my daughter’s family who were entering cows and calves. They won trophies galore and Miss E won her class and Best Overall Young Handler with her calf Rainbow Splash.
