"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Goethe

I've Been Painting. . .

But I've been working a bit more slowly as I learn to look more closely and paint more deliberately.  I've finished a couple of Charleston paintings.
Kiawah Marsh

Angel Oak

I've also been experimenting with drawing on plates.
And finally, I end the year with an art award from the LCAA Holiday Art Show (where I sold the space painting last year--at a loss)  I won the "Theme  Award" for my painting Freesia.  (The theme was "Joy.")
This painting had been hanging up in the Heritage Center for the month of November, and I was intending to pick it up to take home when I was there helping accept art for the show.  I found out that because I had gotten more than two sponsors for the show (I got three), I could enter one painting for free.  The easiest thing to do was to just enter this one.  And, voila, I'm an award-winning artist without even really trying.  There is a lesson in there somewhere.  It came with a $50.00 award, so this year, I came out ahead.
