Burlington County Farm Fair 2015

I participated in the plein air competition at the Burlington County Farm Fair, along with two dozen talented artists.  It was a two-day event, with high temperatures in the nineties.  My entry "Super M" won first prize as well as a purchase prize!  The photo shows Jill Rupinski (judge), myself and the new owner Matthew Edson.  Many thanks to Gene D'Agostino, Denise McDaniel, Melanie Stackhouse and others who organized and volunteered for the event.
