I’ll be snug in my nice warm bed when the party starts but I’ll see you all a few hours later in the morning when I get up :) not quite keen enough to get up at 2am!

Each exhibitor now has a “Ribbon Row”. Your first Ribbon, we hope you wear proudly. It is an award in itself— the exhibitor’s badge, noting your invitation and participation in SoJie 15, “For the Birds”. Congratulations!!

Will you get another ribbon during the show? It’s not time to tell.

Congratulations to Elena, Linaji and Linda who are the judges of the show.

I would not like to do this job :)

Beatrice, once you Solo with us (later this year maybe?), you will have the honor of doing so some time!
Ask any past Judge and they will tell you how rewarding it is, too. I hope we also make it fun.

I’m personally so grateful to our judges, always. And Linda, Lina, and Elena are excellent for the job and
wonderful people, to boot!


Welcome! I’m still mailing announcements!

Hooray, applause! (for everyone else of course, and a little curtsy from me ;)
Thank you, Robin and Eddy!

It is a difficult job of selection, because, personally, we don’t want to leave anyone out.
But we do suck in our breaths and get down to the hard part.

It’s rewarding to see such a delightful result, which does celebrate the beauty and nature of birds.
Thank you!! Thank you all for making this happen.

Next month is Landscape and Light, @Randy, perfect for you!! Thanks for coming!

@Paolo, greetings!!! Beautiful to see you here, all the way from Italy! Tell your wife, greetings! and please no lunch today, as we will fill you up with good food at the reception! :D

@Linda, hold onto your seat, would not want you to miss the fun. You have nominated in the past, I believe, been a judge in the past, and an exhibitor in the past. We are all the way back around. So good to have you in the Bird Show!

@Elizabeth, I was about to call you. You’re awake, fantastic! Just another 45 minutes and we’ll have the place rocking and reeling!

We’re missing Maxy! I heard from her this morning, and we may see her a bit later! Hope so!

Elizabeth Bravo Elizabeth Bravo 5566 posts

Congratulations and thank you to Lina, Elena and Linda for being chosen and serving as judges. I am sure this is as rewarding as it will be difficult.

Congratulations to Frannie, Elizabeth and Maxy for a rocking SoJie. (Even if Maxy won’t be able to be here until later, she’s still here in spirit.)
Congratulations to all the exhibitors…your work is amazing and blows me away. The workshop and watching the paintings evolve was amazing.

Anticipation is building.
It’s such an honor just to be here.
Rooting for my favorites…. Having watched the paintings as works in process, I feel a personal attachment to some of them and although I wish all well, there are some of the paintings I am especially hoping capture a special award.

Have fun every one!
