The local art council's ArtSpace is having another exhibit
"Colors of the Soul".
I entered four paintings, including the one above.
Today the judging is taking place and I will find out if any of the four will be accepted.
I still find it so hard to put myself out there.
Its also challenging to get the pieces ready to show without much resources, pushing me to get more creative.
The painting above was part of an 11"x14" background I was working on:
I liked it so much that I stopped and couldn't decide what to do with it.
I cut it down to 8"x10", used a mat and frame I already had
It really did come out nice.
I think it will be accepted.
I wanted to enter my latest painting although I had no idea how I was going to get it "hang-able" as it was painted on a 9"x12" flat canvas. I did not have a mat or frame to fit so I found an old 11"x14" canvas that I had messed up and painted the sides to match the painting that would be glued on top of it:
Ummm...too plain....so some matching fabric spray paint took care of that problem:
I used Gorilla Glue to glue the flat canvas on top and this is the finished piece:
(glue don't fail me now!)
I also entered "Hidden"
and one of my Dragonfly Fairy Girls:
(you can tell that I am still learning how to take photos
of framed pictures without reflections showing up)
The picture on the bottom from the July show has already been accepted into this exhibit:
