The El Paseo Arts Foundation held an Art Contest for local artists.
Janét Kanaepp was chosen as the contest winner. She said she has been painting since childhood and has taught art in different military bases throughout Europe.
“I was really shocked and surprised that I was chosen as the winner,” Kanaepp said.
Kanaepp was the first winner of the contest. She said the painting was made with acrylic paint and patience. She won a $500 grant from El Paseo along with $35 for each print of her work issued.
