Entered the BoldBrush Art Competition for the first time. Entered this painting that was sold before completed, so it was nice to be able to enter it into a competition too. Many of you have seen the image before, but again, have never been able to enter it into a competiton because it was sold. There are some amazing entries at this sight. WOW. So much talent out there. Well here is to another FIRST.... Hope you like. Share at will too.
PLUS two day workshop begins again on Tues. at VAC.... see preceeding post for more info... or the link to Venice Art Center bottom right too. Hope to see you soon Back to commission painting. Not enough 'out and about' these days.... way too studio bound.
