Best In Show?

It has been brought to my attention by Squirrel that this painting was chosen as this year's winner of the juried exhibition at the Humboldt County Fair by bay area judge, Jack Toolin.

We believe that Mr. Toolin's corn dogs, funnel cakes, and luxurious weekend stay at the Fern Motel must have been funded by Roger Rodoni, John Campbell and Phil Arnot. Otherwise how can anyone explain this award while the FANTABULOUS sculpture "Elvis," by Eldrine Norris, on the anniversary of The King's death no less, was completely overlooked??!

In addition to being the "King of Rock and Roll" Elvis was a great American who took time off from being the number #1 pop star in the World to serve in the US Military.

Jan. 8, 1935 - Aug. 16, 1977

Great American Patriot.

If you squint your eyes it blurs it and that makes it better. I guess it captures some spirit that appealed to the judges.
