First of all, let me thank Frannie for allowing me the ABSOLUTE HONOR of co-monitoring this workshop and writing the bios, and EVERYONE in the workshop for making it such a delight! Congratulations to everyone here, awards or not, because all of this art is beyond breathtaking and leaves me in awe. A special congratulations to @Susan Kimball for winning your awards with the translation of my work! Eeeek! You are so amazing; I was thrilled with your final! And a very special thank you to @Annie Lemay for allowing me to translate her gorgeous photograph.

I was so thrilled just to be nominated; I never expected an award! I am thrilled to death with Janis’ award!!!!!! THANK YOU JANIS!!!!! I am over the moon right now; this is just wonderful!! Completely made my day/week/month! :)

@Anna, welcome, it’s so great to see you, and I bet it has been special, looking around at the ribbon rows of the exhibits, and seeing your Special Awards. Of course we kept you and the other Judges in suspense on the Placement awards, based on your combined scores. So it’s always fun to know you get to be surprised just like the recipients of the awards. Thank you so much, again, Anna, for serving as our Digital Expert on the SoJie 17 Jury.

@Stephie, wow, it was so great to see you getting all of these awards. Very deserved! I’m delighted to hear your reaction, too. This is what it’s all about. Well placed support, by meritorious acknowledgement and encouragement. Janis understands that. Congratulations, again, Stephie!

@Andrew (Nawroski), how wonderful to see you here commenting on the artworks in the show. Thank you! Your art is fantastic.
@Shanina, hi! huge congratulations!
@Maria, hi, and congratulations. You and all the other exhibitors inspire me.
@Eddy, great to see you, and now is better than never! We started a little early to hopefully allow for more Australians to be with us, in real time. Congratulations, Eddy!
@Matt, congratulations on your exhibit; I love this work! Want to carry the dog home with me and play with it.
@Cate, your ears must have been burning. I was looking for you before the show was nominated. Thought I had lost you. Great to see you!
@Cathy, thanks for coming by and commenting as well! Glad you like the show!
@Klaus (N.C. Faceart), how wonderful to see you here. I just visited your portfolio and see that you love portraiture. Street portraiture, specifically. Wonderful. I so look forward to having a street portraiture workshop next Solo season. I get excited just thinking about that one. And of course a grand exhibition to cap it off. So glad you came by for a visit.

Wow! First, my deepest gratitude to all participants and judges; to the Solo Team for having considered my work; i never thought this work deserved such attention, I’m so grateful for this. I have to apologize for not being present as I used to be in the past; since the last time RB changed its look I’ve being deorientated most of the time and have missed a lot of good things, including the chance to interact with all my good friends.
Thanks a lot to Anna Cuypers for having featured this work, too.
Congrats to all winners.

Congratulations!!!! friends and wonderful artists, do you know that- I love art so much no matter what kind it may be!!!! Looking through all, I mean all your awesome art it brings tears. I know I am a little bit to emotional, but it is true…the talent you guys have is so so so profoundly touching….it has to touch the heart and soul of people and artists when looking at your images, your talent your hard work, and knowing the joy of you artists when you have accomplished your work on that empty canvas that turns into your imagination of something so beautiful and unique with all of your very own styles..I am not letting out the photographers, there beauty is magnificent.
Hi Frannie, thank you for sending me the bmail so at least I can get here for the time to see everything..I am not done…still have to go thru more..
Sherri God Bless to all and hugss.

Hi everyone, I’ve just had another look over and read everyone’s comments. It was a splendid show, what touched me most was how Janis included everyone in the traditional art group and made them all feel special. Well done Janis.
Also was so very pleased to see Frannie and Jolante pick up awards for their translations of ‘our lady’. They both did such beautiful work. Thank you and congratulations xox

Thank you so much for that wonderful compliment Maree…I have to say that none of the awards were gratuitous, all were completely deserved and that I found it really gratifying to be able to reward everyone’s hard work…
