Oregon State Fair 2016 – Second Place

Shortly before I left for Cincinnati (to paint the church wall in my post below), the Oregon State Fair was taking place. The calligraphers in the area from the Portland Society of Calligraphy, Salem Capital Calligrapher’s and Valley Calligraphy Guild and others from around the State submit their calligraphy designs for display at this event. The guilds select judges and Honorable Mentions through 3rd, 2nd and 1st place awards are given.

I was honored to receive a second place ribbon. Thank you to the judges, the guild members who sponsor this and to those who came to view.┬áMy father, Cliff Mansley, Sr. took honorable mention for his Physicians Prayer.┬áThis design is my original of the hymn “Great is Thy Faithfulness” with references to Lamentations 3:22-24. It is a collage of paste paper (red), Indian Bark paper, other handmade papers, Dr. Martin’s white and gouache.
