Last weekend we exhibited at the 27th annual Wings ‘n Water Festival of the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor, NJ.  This is largely a wood carvers’ show but they also jury-in photography, oils and watercolors, all of which is to be associated with coastal life and animal and bird life.

Barbara and our friend, Tom, decide which pictures go where on our display panels. 

I find it most peaceful to stay out of this phase.

Here’s the finished result.  Not bad.











Here’s an overview of part of the show.  No watercolors here as they were in another building.

Lots of exquisite carving.  I noticed that many booths had magnifying glasses so that connossieurs could study feather detail.  It’s a good thing that people don’t want a magnifying glass to look at pixel detail.

I was pleased and honored to have one of my images selected for a Third Place Ribbon for Coastal Scenics. 

Entitled “Sunrise On The Jetty”, here it is.
