2015 Catalog Cover Art Competition Winner

Ida Faraghan, Cinnaminson NJ

I began watercolor painting at age 65. With no formal training, I struggled with the art, until I found a local art teacher, Rosemary Hutchins. Extremely talented, giving, and sharing of her craft. She was my inspiration to continue to improve my love of watercolor.

I have been painting for 21 years, and still learning. I continue my love for sheep in my watercolors.

Happily married for 66 years. Five fantastic, loving, talented children, that presented us with 12 beautiful grandchildren; 4, about to be 5, wonderful great-grandchildren.

I am overwhelmed and honored to be part of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, that I have attended for many years.

Our T-shirt committee is still looking for volunteers to help in this fast-paced and exciting area. Things get underway this Sunday as they set up the shelving and get out the merchandise that's been stored since last year. On Wednesday morning, the new merchandise gets delivered, and then it's time to fold, fold, fold. Openings are still available for sales help, too, especially on Sunday.
