I entered

Those who have followed along with me, know I recently joined a new art group. They are having a show/sale in March. You also know I dabble in painting but have never really considered myself an artist. I bravely joined the group and worked on my watercolor cards during our meetings. The organizer of the sale told me I should have a couple of canvases to display in addition to my cards.

I bravely shared the two I completed last weekend and you know what? They love them! The group has some very talented artists and I did not know if my pieces would be up to their standards.

Here are my canvases. They are 8 x 20 and I used watercolor ground on a canvas to be able to use watercolor paints.



I have no idea if anything will sell but I am glad I entered. 

Adding this to PaintPartyFriday

Stop by and visit the wonderful artists there. Thank you for stopping here and for your kind words. They make my day!
