New Art...

I've been working on a new painting and finally, late last night, I finished it. I'm calling it "In the Garden of Fun"...


I'm going to try and enter this in an art show that is coming up soon. It's a juried show so I probably won't get in but I'm going to give it a try.

I'll also enter the red flowers that got second place at the fair. Unfortunately I can't enter the first place winner from the fair because it's too big! The show only wants paintings up to 16"x24" and that painting is 20"x20"...I even called to make sure about the size.

I also finished my doodle art last night...I had a productive evening while HB watched TV.


This is a bit edgier than some of my doodles but I like how it turned out. It's always fun to put that first line on a clean white piece of paper and then to see where it leads me.

I have a busy day of errands and grocery shopping ahead of me so I better get busy. Have a good day...

PS - I know I posted this earlier but I wanted to link it with Paint Party Friday so I've edited this post.
