2016 Windsor Fair's Poster
Contest Winner

2016 Windsor Fair’s Poster Contest Winner “Megan Shepherd” I have been drawing since I can remember, which eventually turned into sketching and painting. My favorite source of inspiration is the family farm and forest where I grew up. I heard about the wonderful opportunity that Windsor fair had to offer, and was encouraged to enter by friends and family members. I really began to start thinking seriously about it, but was very hesitant to try painting. After all, I had never used the acrylic paints that were required. I knew I wanted to stay close to the agricultural feel of the Windsor fair, but I couldn't decide how to illustrate it. It wasn’t until my husband suggested the barnyard stack, did I really get excited to give painting a shot! I feel so blessed to have my artwork featured as this year's poster illustration for my favorite fair!!!! I'd like to say thank you to all of those who encouraged me to enter, and also to the wonderful people on the Windsor Fair board for choosing me!
Thank-you to all who participated. The artwork submitted was very good
and made our decision very difficult. Keep those creative juices
flowing ,your talent is amazing to me and the trustees. Thanks again,
Karen Foster
