I've done a lot lately that I haven't posted, plus I've been framing for two simultaneous art shows, into one of which I have yet to be juried. It's the Philadelphia WC Society's members' show and I've gotten in the last 2 years, so here's hoping. I hear the juror is a "tight" painter and I'm going to enter something VERY loose. Our local art center has a brand new gallery and this will be the inaugurating show.

I repainted my double portrait of my son and his daughter with the goal of getting the drawing better and getting more color in their faces. Then it was suggested that I give them a blue background which I've done only in Photoshop, so far. I like it that way.

I've also started an ambitious watercolor and, for fun, I did a pastel yesterday. The pastel is of a scene in Colorado I photographed last fall. It was a pretty boring photo, so I jazzed up the colors a bit.

The painting is so much more visually interesting and inviting than the photo! Good use of your artistic license, Jane. Also, good for you NOT painting to suit the judge in the juried show - crossing my fingers for you.
