Uploaded my application!

I have been way too busy to jump on the  blog-o-sphere lately to read my fellow bloggers writings, and to write anything of my own, until now! My goal has been accomplished and I submitted four paintings this evening to Artpace. The deadline is Tuesday, and I just finished painting and mounting the last one I wanted to complete today (picture below). Thanks to my daughter, she edited the pictures to professional quality photographs and her hard work is much appreciated! I have added the ones I submitted to my art page here on my blog. They may or may not accept any of my art work, but I accomplished what I set out to do so I am pretty happy about it!  I want to thank 37 Paddington for motivating me to keep on going with my loopy designs!

I picked up a small watercolor sketch book in the spring and have been drawing out and painting some of the loopy designs during my lunch breaks.  So far I have 14 designs in my sketchbook and of those I have implemented five of them onto canvas's. Now I'm working on getting the last two completed paintings onto the stretcher bars that are in different shapes for each design.

I hope to enter three of them into a juried art show, the deadline is October 25th. Let's see how it will go!!!!
