I entered Bruin for Trouble (see in earlier post below) in my first juried mini show where it won first over 206 entries. It also sold. Red arrow is pointing to the painting. I think I'm going to like painting miniatures! :)
I also entered and was accepted into the show (148 were juried in out of an entry of 218) with my original of "It's a Big New World Out There" (see www.deedeemurry.com/dogs.htm). It also sold. This mixed media painting of a dachshund pup is about 13 x 17 and is available as prints.
An aside note, this was the first time in 18 yrs (I believe) of entering the Federal that I didn't get my entry done in time. I was happy with the ducks but struggled with the background as I did not have any reference for that and was trying to conjure it soley out of my head. It was looking good but then took a turn south when I tried airbrushing a new color of green over it. And not enough time then to fix it and finish.
I'll be starting earlier next year!
