Best in Show Award

Uniquely Stafford

It was a big honor that my painting of "Melcher's  Neighbor" was chosen for this award.  In the photo you can see how happy I look.  I've never received a "Best in Show" award.  My heart started racing when I heard my name.  It was very exciting. 

The house is located near the entrance to Belmont.  I painted it several times before because it just grabbed me.  Getting ready for the show it was the first place we went to take photos.  I have some attachment to the house.  It was build in 1881 even before Gari Melchers lived there.  Belmont is one of my favorite places, too.
