Wanting to do a series of fruits and veggies to mat and frame for my kitchen.. Found these on Wet Canvas .. I need one more... maybe a red pepper for a series of three. I've also taken the bold step of signing in RED.
Painted this just this morning . It was a quick one and I see lots of 'shoulda', coulda' etc. But the whole idea of this painting is that I know when my blogging friends up north, and across the pond, see the crocus peeking through the snow, they know it's not far from Spring..
Plant City, Florida is known for it's strawberry farms. People come from all over to be at the festival.. Of course more than strawberries are there. It's from Feb. 27 - Mar. 9.
Our art guild puts on an art show, which I've participated for the past 2 years and again this year.
This year I was asked to donate a painting for the raffle which benefits a scholarship that we support.. So above is my donation. I hope it goes to a good home.. I painted it a couple years ago.. it's matted and in a 16x20" frame.
As for an entry into the judged show I'll be putting in 'Prima' the ballerina girl. While I'm at it I'm posting another finished piece that I did recently .. (below)
A young Jamaican girl.. I believe I found the photo on Wet Canvas, one of the copyright free sites for artists.. I have another site that I use and can never remember which one . BJ
I'm an artist painting my way through this journey called life.. Watercolor and pencil are my main mediums and I'm honored to have won awards for my work in both.
The destination is not so important as the daily trek in trying to get there.
