Thank you, Don and Irina!

You should be doing this show, too, Don.

Jeanette said...

Wonderful news and not unexpected at all. Congratulations.

Pretty spiffy in the tux too..

Well-deserved first place award, Casey! Congratulations!

Congrats Casey, but we need more pics!

Congratulations on the first place award, Casey - that's great news! And your're looking pretty dashing in the tux, too.

Congratulations,
Have you thought of taking Hwy 101 home? Tomorrow my husband and I go to Lincoln City area for over a month where I have some special places to paint sheltered from the winds. Would be interesting to have some new company.

Congrats Casey on a much deserved first place!

Thank you, Jeanette. It was unexpected for me! I did suffer hard this year after getting this award last year. I wanted to make sure I could paint at that level. Color me relieved to be painting my personal best.

Thank you, Kvan and Deborah. I failed on the photos - never my strong suit. I will dig for more, and post even the poor ones just for you.

10Q, Brian. I bought that tux many years ago for an art museum show I used to do. I guess this is the fifth time I've worn it in the artist persona...it is fun to do.

Hi, Nika. I did paint my heart out these past two years. I will share some thoughts about it on the blog.

Diane, I remember your beach place from your posts. What a kind invite. My kids have already started school, so I will be up tomorrow morn before the sun, and try to get home one day shorter than I drove down. Perhaps some day - do you ever get there in the summer?

Thank you, Loriann! I am a humbled artist by this.

Congrats, Casey!
Were you wearing a tux while hanging out in your booth the whole time? :)

Casey Klahn said...

Jala, it was a t-shirt with a tux pattern on it.

Thanks for the congrats!

Celeste Bergin said...

Congratulations, Casey! Can we see the piece that clinched the award? High five! I am super proud of you!

B Boylan said...

Wow Casey! That is great news about the award! Well deserved! AND, you look pretty sharp in that bow tie too!

Thanks to my Portland and SW Wash friends. Celeste, the award is for the whole body of work shown in my booth. Pretty much The Prairie Series.
