Crow Painting ( Is It Mine?) (SOLD)

Another Crow....what can I say, they have so much personality.  This fellow is 8" X 8" and the feather he is wondering about is a real feather. He will be for sale also this weekend.  Hope to see you there

Crow Painting ( I'm Out'a Here ) (SOLD)

Another crow, this fellow will also be for sale at the Jantzen Beach Mall and the Milwaukie First Friday.  It's a small painting also, framed in a black frame and only 5"x 7".  Several other artists and myself are doing small pieces so that we have some more affordable art for the holidays.

Curious Bird (SOLD)

This is just a little fellow.  I have a bird feeder hanging in a Weeping Cherry tree that I can see outside my studio window and one day this past spring I saw this little fellow peering back at me. It's a tiny painting, only 6" x 6" I did a few small paintings for a this weekend.  I will be at the Milwaukie (SP is correct, it's in Oregon) First Friday event with some fellow artists from the North Clackamas Arts Guild.  Saturday and Sunday I will be at the Jantzen Beach Mall in Portland Oregon doing a show with several other artists.

6" x 6" ART by Phyllis Meyer

This is the final post about the Audubon Show.  Artists donate small 6" x 6" gallery wrapped canvas that they have painted on with a bird motif and these small works are each sold for $40.00. My husband came to the show with me and was willing to stand in line for close to an hour to grab this little gem for me by artist Phyllis Meyer, http://www.villagegalleryarts.org/galleries/meyer.html.  I am thrilled to have this piece by this very talented lady!  Love the style and colors.

Audubon Show

This weekend was the Audubon Wildlife Festival.  It's always a wonderful show to attend.  There are really great artists works to see and the Audubon Society always brings birds that live at the bird sanctuary.  I took dozens of pictures of these remarkable creatures.  I am having problems with my google blogger today and it's not allowing me to download more then one photo.  I will try another post and hopefully share few more photos that I hope will be great inspiration for new collages.

Sun Flower ( End of Summer ) OMG!

I am in shock! I submitted this painting to the international "Blossom Competition" being held at the Naples Florida Art Museum.  The competition is put on by the Susan Black Foundation and is solely for works about flower. I was notified that I my "End of Summer" painting was juried into the show.  The last show was held in 2007 with more then about 1,700 entires from 14 countries and about 100 paintings are chosen for the exhibition.  I feel so lucky to be including in this very outstanding show.  In addition to a beautiful catalog of the show certain works are chosen for the traveling exhibition which will go on until 2013
You can see the past show and works at the website:
