Now for something a little larger

Split Decision - Italy 24 X 30 Oil on Canvas
This was a painting that I had finished and still am not sure if it is what I wanted. This last week was lots of taking and retaking photos of my entries to the Bosque competition. For some reason two of the four paintings seemed chalky when viewing the online entry but when just pulled up on the computer (which is calibrated) it didn't show that way. I am not sure what the problem was so if anyone else had that issue, some help would be appreciated. Next week I will begin working on a series of four from Agia Napa monestary which translated from Greek is "where the saints go". I still will try to do one or two daily paintings to keep my hand/brush flowing. I have some palette knife paintings that I want to do from Port Aransas. Those will most likely post those first. The Series may take awhile.

So much to catch up on

Hill Country Cactus - 16 x 20 Oil on Canvas

I've had such an exciting week. I don't think you all know that I work at Andreeva Art School It is the absolutely the best job. This weeks' instructor was Carol Marine. Talk about a giving person, Carol is wonderful. Check out her blog at, you'll be glad you did. She has anotherd class in Sept. Also, this week, I entered the Bosque Conservatory Competition. It is so exciting painting and then entering competitions or placing them in a show. The above painting is one of four that was entered, so keep me in your thoughts. Third item in this week is Jill Carver, her opening is today. You can check out her paintings which are great at or her website at It's great being an artist with fantastic artists to inspire me. Keep it all fresh.
