Doors Open Ontario Art Contest - Antique Cruet Set, Autumn Raspberries and Ladybugs

St Marys Museum's Antique Cruet Set, Autumn Raspberries and Ladybugs
8" x 10" Acrylic on Canvas
Last October, I submitted two paintings for the Doors Open Art Contest. I was thrilled to learn that the above submission, inspired by a cruet set at the St Marys Museum, was the winner in the adult category. The below, inspired by a room in my home, received an honourable mention. But there's also a second part to this contest. Please consider voting for my paintings in the Doors Open Ontario Peoples Choice Award!

Thank You!

Unfortunately I did not earn enough votes to win the People's Choice Award, (my congratulations to Brianne Casey of Hamilton), but I was very pleased to be the Judges choice and was given gift certificates redeemable for 6 tickets to a performance of my choice at the historic Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre in Toronto. Thank you to Dawson Bridger of the Ontario Heritage Trust for this lovely gesture.

I have happily voted for your wonderful painting of the cruet set with the ladybugs. I hope it is in order for those of us overseas to do so.
It is a wonderful piece of artwork - congratulations.

Hi, Anyes,

I voted for your cruet painting, which is lovely. I'm wishing you luck (though I think you're running away with First Place!).

Hello Mark,
Thank you so much. It does appear so, but I don't want to jinks it. A kid in the youth category that probably has a cazillion friends on his/her Facebook might swoop in at the last minute. But that's okay, it's fun.
