I'm afraid I'm a little behind with my daily paintings now, since I spent two whole days working on this larger piece. I think I need at least a few larger pieces for this upcoming show, so it was worth it.
There is another reception at the Red Door Gallery tomorrow from 4:00-6:00, please stop by if you're in town! And ask me questions! I need practice in answering them :)

I found out yesterday that I won first place in the "Urban/Architectural Landscape" category in the Art Along the Creek show (yay for blue ribbons!).

I was asked to create the image for the Carp-A-Cabana invite this year, a fundraiser for the Carpinteria Education Foundation. This painting will be auctioned off at the event on September 10th.

Judging went well yesterday, I wish my high school had an art program like that! They even had ceramics and sculpture!
