Thanks Brian,

I did my best with five frames in 30 mm in the competition, with three from Daniel Canet, two from Bernard Tardiff, one from Daniel Masser, two from Sandrine Canivet, two from Stephane Coudert, a diorama from Michel Dumay, so 16 out of 64 flats registered in the competition this year, so 25% of them !!

I was very pleased to see a separation of the flats this year, as it brings a strong focus on them instead of a 5% dilution in the fgurines and models, and we can so hope more next year, as obsered in the clubs that changed also their categories during the past years.

No clubs invited this year, probably space issue on top of the vendors, but BFFS is always represented and the split on the competition tales with your large BFFS display gave an excellent focus to the public on the art of flat painting, with the life demo of Eric !!

We had this year 30 artists and 64 pieces registered in competition as following:

Green:        2 artists        3 pieces
Junior:        2 painters,    2 pièces
Novices:      8 painters   14 pièces
Confirmed:  5 painters   14 pièces
Masters:    15 painters   31 pieces

Pictures are Under review, sorting and cleaning and will be added late next week in the gallery due to a long travel next week-end.

Last year: 29 artists and 54 flats, but the shows occurred n the first long week-end of Eastern holidays, not optimal for being crowded ....!

Well we got there and back in one piece!! Paris is an experience to drive in  ;)
A big surprise was we where the only club with a table at the show!!  all the clubs where there but apparently it is not a club event, competition and trade show ::) 
Met lot's of old friends and had a great time, Eric even show me a few hints on shading and light in his demo, which lasted all day as the interest was there, competition  was good for the flats and had some fine work on display, a good number of figures too but need more 30mm!!
Once again I have to report that I won no medal, my style is just not in fashion or it's lack of talent hahaha  next year will be better  ;)
A big thanks to all that made the weekend, it goes in the book as a success and one to go to again.

Well we have over 4 meters of table to fill  :o at the moment it is just Eric and my figures on display!!!  If your at the show bring some figures to help, even if just for a few hours all will help, and if you would like a turn on the table that would be great  ;D
