My First Show

Wow!

I am so elated, psyched, excited - 
whatever!
I entered two paintings in the 
Art League of Baytown Spring Show.
One of them earned a first place
 in the mixed media category.

Pyrene - Gouache, colored pencil and collage.
 The other painting received an honorable mention.


"Lost" - Acrylic and collage
And this is my latest painting made with the inspiration and guidance of the online art classes by Olga Furman.

"The Heron" - Acrylic and pastel.


 Thanks to you all for visiting 
and 
Happy St Patrick's Day!


Linking up with Paint Party Friday

    1. Do you mean Pyrene? She began as a life drawing on paper that lay around in my art folders for a long time. I collaged that drawing to a painting of rocks and it went on from there. Thank you.
