Paintings, Students and Shows

First, the paintings.
These are two new ACEOS I did - a hen and a sheep. The point was to use color in an unexpected way. There's something about that burnt sienna and purple combo that I love. Then, the students~
Last week I was asked by an 8th grade student from the local Montessori school to give an interview about my art and the community. I was a little surprised when I found it that it was an interview to the entire class. But no matter; these kids were so well prepared and asked such insightful questions that I'm sure I gained more than I gave. Their questions resonated and I consider them still while painting. Thank you all!
And shows~
I participated in an online FaceBook based Autumn Painting Challenge. Over 1,000 artists across the world entered their work and the results are being posted here
A big thanks to the three administrators, Sandy Askey-Adams, Jean Levert-Hood, and Nancy Medina for creating this opportunity!
