My husband has been gone for almost three weeks (he's been working on a house up on Bainbridge Island near Seattle) and he came back today. I am so happy to have him back. I figured he'd be tired and want to stay home.. But off he went to the office to "try to catch up"!
I was a bit disappointed not to be with him, but decided to see if I could paint a little painting while he was at work. This painting is the result. I know I have mentioned before that I like small format paintings because they generally don't take up your life with planning and sketching and painting like the larger ones do. I usually stew over those bigger ones... The small format paintings are just fun.
I have some roses in the front yard that are really pretty. A friend gave them to me and I call them "Mom's Roses". - Soft and beautiful. I decided to paint them.
Also... Good news came my way Monday. I know you have read my blog where I wonder in writing WHY I enter juried shows. After all... they cost money and hey... sadly sometimes I get rejected. But I entered an exhibit called "Four Faces Of VIVA" at our local gallery, VIVA, which the sponsors host for their four founding clubs. Man... I thought to myself... I'm really asking for trouble... It's hard enough when you only have ONE club competing for wall space, but when there are four clubs ... well... Let's just say that when I went back in the afternoon to see if I had to pick up my work, there was a VERY LONG line and lots of people were leaving with one and two paintings. (You are only allowed to enter two.) Happily BOTH of my paintings were juried in!! YIPPEEE.
Come by the show at VIVA Art Center in Sherman Oaks, CA. Wed-Sat 11:00-4:00. The show opened today and runs until July 24th. If you can't come by, these are the paintings that were juried in by juror Carol Bishop:

We're having our annual party to celebrate Independence Day this weekend. It's always lots of fun and a nice chance to see people I often don't see the whole rest of the year. I'm guessing I won't have much painting time between now and then because we'll be trying to get ready (ya gotta clean the house SOMETIME, right? ...or at least throw all the junk in a drawer... LOL)
I hope all of you have a great Fourth Of July holiday with friends and family as well.
