Back in the saddle again...

I am so excited. I feel like I haven't done art in a very long time which has frustrated me. When I got a letter from Nationals asking if I'd be interested in donating a piece for this year's silent auction, and needing some original art to offer for sale on the Cruise, I picked through some of my favorite photos and decided to work small. Small is better than not at all right? I think small is going to be the only way to go for a while. So, I've completed two and I'm beginning a third. The problem now will be which one to send and which ones to keep.

This is a little wild flower that pops up about the same time the bluebonnets pop up here in Texas. When you see them growing together they make a beautiful combination of reds and deep blue/purples. When these flowers bloom the landscape is an amazing sight to see. They are called Indian Paints. I loved the cast shadow that's why I wanted to do the piece. Interestingly the colors in the
shadow makes me think of the colors of a blue bonnet. Hummmm...maybe I should call this "Paint in a Field of Blue"....I think I willl.

I wish all titles came that easy.....!

Glad to see you back to sharpening your pencils! Smaller is definately better than nothing, especially when nothing was happening. (Did that make sense??? lol)

I too have an silent auction piece to do, and i'm drawing a blank. Blah. You reminded me I need to get my fanny in gear.
