Simma down...I'm working on more!!

Last nite I got another pastel ready to work on. It's one of my Haitian one's. This one is a mother and her daughter, at open air little lean-to kinda thing. I just love the mother. She is so at peace and beautiful. I'll be posting pics soon.

AND, if I feel like painting, I have a seahorse drawn out on a canvas. This one's gonna be beautiful. The colors are wonderful in it. Can't wait!!!

I still have a few more days to wait...ok, so it's really like 2 weeks, before I hear about the art show. I just really need to know....I have no patience.

Anyhow, yall will get to see some new stuff soon!!!!!:)

Have a beer, sit back and relax...I'll post something soon!:)

Still working on this....and more...

Hawksbill Reef
5' x 4'
Acrylic on Stretched Canvas

I looked at the turtle today and realized that I need more wrinkles on the top of his neck. Tomorrow I will do that, then put the glaze on it.

I'm working on an 8 x 10 painting of another turtle and should have that done soon. I may have turtles down soon!!!:)

And, I have a seahorse drawn out to start and get done for the show....if I am "in"....still waiting to hear about that.....

I have entered a SHOW!!!!

Well, I got everything together for the "Jury" for the DeLand Fall Festival of the Arts. It is November 21st and 22nd. I will know by Sept. 7th if I am "in". I have secured a tent already... Now I just have to paint and make frames til the show, if I am "in". I have ALWAYS wanted to do this, but I didn't do any art for so many years, it just wasn't possible. When I was in HS I always had entries in the "School Section"....I did good there!!:)

I'm probably going to work on another pastel next. After finishing a painting for a friend...LINDA!!!!:)
Then it's all about the show. If I am "in".....

The 7th seems so far away right now!!

IT'S ALL GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, it still needs some work, but it is almost ready for the "Jury"!!!!:)

TURTLE SHELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, I'm LOVING this!!!! Now I know I have to get rid of some of the blue, especially on his "beak'!!! That looks rediculous.... But this shell, that is NOT done is lookin' GOOD!!!!!

I'm EXCITED!!!!!

The Turtle....

First, I can't get a good picture of this. Next, I have 2 days to get this done, make a CD with images THAT ARE GOOD to send to the Jury for the show in November. Got to have that delivered by the 14th. The turtle is going good, but I don't like that back fin that is the farthest's only paint, I can paint over it. Right now I'm starting the shell.

I've had the hardest time painting this turtle. IT'S BLUE!!! I don't paint blue turtles. BUT, it is at 60 ft. and you lose color there and all color turns to blue, so I have a blue turtle. If I do it different it won't work with the coral. My major concern right now is the "beak"....I just DON'T like it. It's paint, I can paint over it!!!!!:)

Goodness, I'm just stressing myself out here!! I guess because I've got 2 days and I want it PERFECT!!! I guarantee I WILL get it!!!LOL
I'm too anal!!:)
