|9 x 12 pastel on sanded paper|
Well, how's this for a splash of color! I finished this painting today. I do want to do more paintings of fish, and I'd like to improve and better the outcome, but I had fun nonetheless.
I entered Richeson 75 Landscape show, and my painting "Watching the Stream" was not a finalist (in which case you must ship your paintings to their gallery in the MidWest), but it did make the "meritorious" selection. I am very happy. This is the first time I entered one of their juried shows. My painting will be printed in their catelogue, along with 100 other meritorious paintings. I ordered the catelogue - they print a hardbound book. I'm looking forward to receiving it.
