UPDATE - This year's entries in the Canyon County Fair faced the judges and did really well. Of the 4 entries in this year's fair, all 4 received ribbons.
Adult Portrait of Tricia Gillaspy - 2nd place.
Child Portrait of Anica Asumendi - 1st place
Black and White Portrait of Eric Hauser - 1st place
Sports Portrait of Davis Peterson - 4th place.
Even though the goal of entering the portraits in the fair is not to win ribbons, it's great validation of the high-quality portrait work that I strive to deliver with every person I have the privilege to work with.
