  1. Another fantastic arts exhibit at the Puyallup Fair.
    Thank you Rosemary for a condensed piece on my entry Sir Rodney Lancebuster. I do try to inject humor into my 3D sculptures and have fun doing it.
    I am surprised to learn there are only two judges per category. Seems an odd or larger number would be more representative and also induce a tie breaker if needed. Steve Barnard
