Before and After painting
In my last post I mentioned my tendency to add paint to pictures on my wall. Well the Christmas show at our local Art Gallery is less than a couple weeks away. It's an under 100 show. Under a hundred dollars and under a hundred square inches. I'm excited that my work got juried in but I'm not getting as many paintings ready for it as I planned. My solution is to rework some paintings on my wall that just weren't up to snuff.
Above is a hummingbird painting I did as a challenge for James Parker's blog back in the spring. Below it is the new and improved version. It may not look better because of the photo but I think it is. The plain blue background of the first one gave it a paint by number look.
