New website for my art!

I now have a website for my artwork:! Some have commented they'd like to see prints and cards made from some of the paintings so let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in that format and I will see about getting prints made. I'm really excited to be entering this new phase as an artist.

I also finished the Mask painting. It's still untitled.
She was interesting to paint. I think want to do another one. hmmm.

Winning paintings

Cordovan Art School had their student show last Friday evening. It was great to see what all the other classes had been creating. The kids always amaze me with their talent. I mean, there are some wonderful little artists out there! It's fantastic to see little 6 -9 year olds creating some really good art. wow. They're so cute!
I like seeing what the other adult classes are doing too in the other classes. The pastel, watercolor, and other classes had some beautiful pieces. Just love it!
One of the newer students in my class won 1st place. I'm so excited for Max. I wish you could have seen his piece - he had painted a pioneer woman at a spinning wheel in front of the fire. It was fantastic! Ardelle  got a 3rd for her forest painting - her handling of the sunlight streaming through the trees was beautiful. And Nancy got a 3rd for her first ever person - a little girl reading. Congratulations to all of you!
My "Secret Place" won 2nd:
The Secret Place
And "Midnight's Journey" won Viewer's Choice!

Midnight's Journey
All in all, a good night for this artist! I'm very pleased everyone liked my paintings. Thank you to all.

A finished painting and a new one started

"The Secret Place" is finished! I really enjoyed painting this one.

"The Secret Place"

 I love the challenge of painting a horse and the mushrooms were a blast to paint. The fairies, because of their small size, had their own challenges ( trying to get their faces painted ) but they are done and look pretty cool.

My next painting is more realistic - one of a woman wearing a mask. I'm considering making it a dragon mask - it is the Year of the Dragon, after all. Here's the beginning of it:

This one is small: 14" x 11". Looking forward to developing it.

Next week Cordovan Art School is having their student show. "The Secret Place" and "Midnight's Journey" will be in it. I would love to win a ribbon! :o)
