“Edith”

Thank you for voting for the “Edith” painting in the Fine Art America Billboard Contest and for all the shares on social media. I think that she would have been cheerful on a billboard.  She received 103 votes to make it to the final level out of hundreds of thousands of entries. The verdict is in and she wasn’t one of the twenty chosen for billboards.  She did amazingly well regardless. Original SOLD 🔴
