My new Hummingbird Painting!

Hey Yall! Come this February my mother will be gone from us for five years. I miss her everyday. But this painting reminds me of her because she loved hummingbirds so much. So heres to you mom!

I get excited about every new piece. In the beginning before there is paint on the canvas; I have my doubts that I can do it. But then once I start putting paint on the canvas all that doubt starts to go away with every  brush stroke. lol! then after I have a lot of brush strokes on there and it has taken shape but still missing something; Im afraid I am gonna mess it up! Isnt that funny! Anyway, here ya go and I will post again on this painting!

Today I’m working on painting….

Today I’m working on painting. And the next month will be painting, painting, paintings! I got to build inventory! I just realized I give everything away! I only have a handful of paintings! So a painting I will go, a painting I will go, hi ho the dairy oh a painting I will go! I’m in love with it though, so I like it! I’m not even sure I have gotten into the art show yet, but I’m gonna pretend I have and carry on.

Art Show

So there’s a new art show in town, coming Nov. 10th and I’m gonna try to enter. Its juried so they want let just anyone in. So I have to send in three pieces to show them my work. So I’m on the fence cause if I get accepted that will give me 1 month to smack out as many paintings as I can muster. I currently have little inventory because I give everything away. So do I send in my very best work, or do I send in pieces that didn’t take to long to make. Here are some examples,

So which ones should I enter to try and get into the show! Suggestions appreciated!
