When I showed the boys my old ribbons they got excited and really wanted to make some entries for our county fair. I explained to them how the entries are categorized by medium. So, one rainy day we worked on pastels and tempera paints...

Too nice outside to sit in the kitchen and make art? Do it outside!! Here we are doing marker and colored pencil pictures out on the deck...

I've been collecting frames at garage sales and thrift stores and have been having fun framing their art! It's amazing how nice it all looks in a nice frame! I am even going to join in the fun this year and enter a couple of my own paintings and photos. We'll see how it goes.
At least I know that, ribbons or no ribbons, we will have had fun making art and seeing it on display at the fair this year! If you're in Waconia, MN next week, stop on into the Carver County Fair and see if you can find some Fleener art! (while you're there, be sure to stop by my face painting booth in the commercial building!) Stay tuned for more photos of the results...
