Finally A Week Off

Title: Over the Mountains
Size: 11 x 14 inches
Medium: Acrylic
Support: Hardboard

I finally have a week off! My big job will be done in just a couple of more weeks, and then my husband and I will be going to visit his family for a week.

Last month was the annual San Mateo Country Fair. My entries "Eyes of Billy" won the best of show in the oils/acrylics paintings division, "Frog Prince" won the first place in the miniatures, and "Over the Mountains" won the first place in the Birds class in the oils/acrylics division.

I have just started another raven painting, hoping to finish it over the weekend. Will post it when it's done.

Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone!
