Yoakum County Art Show

 Spring is Here

Our annual art show was this past week. It went great. Lots of hard work, but it is always fun.  I got a 1st place on a portrait of the fisherman. (earlier post) and won 3 second places. Seven pieces sold, and am very honored that people buy my art. 'Spring is Here' is a new painting, and it won a 2nd place, along with 'Fashion Statement' and 'Rodeo Clown'..Both earlier posts.
I actually started 'Spring painting' a few years ago, and I put it up, then dug it out and finished it.
It is watercolor, with cut out flowers and  then collaged onto the painting.
  I painted the paper in shades of blue with watercolor, then used one of those metal cutters and cut out all the tiny petals.

Smile

'Smile'  is an acrylic painting of my friend Pat.   She is always taking photos of everybody,  esp at the community happenings!...
