Finished.

Preview of Silent Auction
Acrylic on Canvas, 30" x 24"

The painting only took me 30 minutes to finish. I was going to go further, but then I was running the risk of screwing it up...so I just signed it.

I was going to start a new floral landscape on gessobord, but I got really, really hungry. When that happens, distractions occur. My husband went out in the snowstorm (yes, it's snowing again) and brought home fried chicken. Nothing better on a Sunday evening...not even art. I'm feeling much better.

The next painting I will attempt will be a scene of one of my border gardens. This garden lines the front walk to our restaurant entrance. Last summer, we had a rather wet summer which meant everything grew in a luscious way. I hardly had to water much. The scene will have lots of purple cone flowers, tall garden phlox, and black-eyed Susans. Very much a prairie thing....living in the a prairie state...it makes total sense.
My next two days are booked with meetings, but I hope to start it on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
