In an earlier post I asked for help to name a new painting. But I think I got it figured out. What do you think?

Halloween for this artist…

What did I do for Halloween? I dressed up as an old Cajun hick needing real thick glasses and wearing my shawl with my Mardi Gras beads. My table had a small pumpkin we grew and some taffy for visitors to snack on. I sat with my tablecloth embroidering hummingbirds at the MAC Museum on Halloween (yesterday).   I think more people came over and showed interest in the hummingbird tablecloth I was embroidering, than in the art on the walls, or, maybe it was just the candy. The biggest surprise was that I had put way too much makeup and stuff in my hair messing it all up for my old Cajun lady costume ….and one lady said she liked my hair style.  That is pretty bad when you try to make yourself look a real mess, and someone mistakes it for your style. Really?

I was the “docent” (babysitter) all day for the Spokane Watercolor Society Show art. This show is up through the weekend after Thanksgiving. There are some real beauties, and the admission is free.

contests again

BTW I have had a long (4 years) separation from entering any art competitions and shows and this year I am beginning again. The portrait of Lil’ Ben was entered into,

The Artist’s Magazine Annual Art Competition

hope it will do well…

You know what they say the only guarantee you have is if you don’t enter you for sure will not win. LOL!

 

 

Do you have great shots???

I have to start working on fresh  entries to Art contests. I quit entering a few years back when I was sick, but things have changed. What the hey, why not?

I’d like to do a portraits or landscape well you know me. If you have a great picture of someone human or animal, that shows a great expression, light, wrinkles or lack of them, and wouldn’t mind me painting it, then send it my way. Have you seen something unbelievable lately? Thought I’d ask for some help scaring up some fresh subject matter.
