This week I went back to painting the mason jars... I really liked painting the blue one in the painting of three, so this time I painted two. I think my family will be happy this one is done... it's ALL I did this week... now it's time to go back to the real world... cooking and cleaning and mom duties!

Spring is always such a busy time but I did manage to get some small works finished this weekend... the first is from a photo taken on our trip to NYC last month when we picked Cat up from college... it's an arrow to the parking garage and I loved the colors... ...This is the first of the NYC series.. titled "Enter"... 16" x 20".

The second is for the Different Stroke challenge hosted by Karin Jurick... I had purchased the canvas to paint the last challenge of hers (taxis on Madison Ave in NYC) but just ran out of time.. but it was perfect this challenge as well! She provided a black and white image and we were to fill in the colors... I went with the spring colors.. my favorite!

This is the other painting I have been working on.. Trying to get it done in time for the Ohio State Fair. The submissions have to be postmarked by Friday... I have plenty of time, right?!? :)

Anyway, I haven't chosen a title.. guess I have to do that by Friday too... but hey.. it's only Wednesday!!

This is what I have been working on lately... lots of detail and very time consuming! I am almost finished so I thought I'd post a picture so my dad knows that I really have been working!! :)

The Gallery in The Vault in Wooster Ohio called yesterday to say that they are in the running for an award from the Cleveland TV station, fox8. If they win, they will be featured on TV and it would be great publicity and bragging rights!! It's a lovely gallery with wonderful people running it and I'd love to see them win! If you get a chance, I would appreciate your help by voting here... Thanks!
