The finish line
a few years ago they cut it down to three. I really like to take
part in all three, but the little paintings I've been doing would
disappear on the big walls at Todmorden Mills where we have
our shows. I usually paint very large paintings for the show,
but just did not have the time this year. Instead I finished
my larger painting of the woman coming out of the water, and
this one called The Invitation. I really like this painting. I seem
to have gone crazy with the blue and red theme, but I don't mind.
This year we had to stand in line and the first 125 paintings in the
door were the show. I was third in line -- so I seem to be in.
Now I have to get back to work on my other painting. Tomorrow
is a school day, and it's time to check off the lists.
Have a Wow-I-can-really-do-this-painting-thing day.
