Between my daughter's end of year school activities and dance recitals, I am squeezing in my time to get my ducks in order for submitting work to four shows this summer! Today and Monday I submit work to my first juried shows and I am preparing work for two other local shows for July and August. I'm excited and nerve racked at the same time. Here is some of my latest work I'm doing in preparation. Thank goodness I have a supportive and sweet hubby to deal with me!
Plein-air piece I had a short time in the field to work on (had to get the girl from school). I brought it home to continue the work. Still more to go. But working outside at this local marsh was so lovely. I am enjoying outdoor painting so much. I love listening to the birds and wind while I'm absorbed I painting.
This is also another work in progress. This cutie kitty is one of our local shop kitties. I couldn't resist doing another cat painting.
This is one of my obstacles I have to face while painting. Her name is Crystal. Yes, you have seen her in some of my work. I have two other obstacles, Mr. Hobbes and Tink. Of course, it is their subtle way of telling me I need to make time for them as well. Plus I'm lucky they model for love and food and not for money! Really, I am a lucky woman.
