two new paintings
Well, I did it.
I finally scraped one off.
I tried to rush too much yesterday and
didn't like the end result in another painting,
so it has been scraped and is awaiting new inspiration.
BUT - I do like these two completed paintings.
The top one is a new baby lamb on a beautiful spring day
and the other is an Algodones sunset coming back from Santa Fe.
In other news, I won an award for Honorable Mention last week
in the Enchanted Skies competition for the Santa Fe Plein Air Festival.
I got my award certificate in the mail today.
But what was surprising is that I also received a check for $125 from PAPNM,
an $80 gift certificate for Judson Outfitters,
and a $25 gift certificate for Blick Art Supply.
Not bad considering I entered the juried event
on the last day of the deadline.
It was such a fun event and so well organized!
