VMRC 8th Annual Juried Art Exhibition

Daisies in Turquoise  Oil on wood  8" x 10"  NFS
Hydrangeas  Oil on wood  8" x 8"  NFS
I am so pleased!  Daisies in Turquoise and Hydrangeas made it into the Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community 8th Annual Juried Art Exhibition.  532 entries were submitted from 31 states and only 103 were chosen by the panel of jurors.  Yay, me.    I won't make it to the Randy Higbee 6" x 6" Artist Reception (which is tonight, big boohoo) ---but me thinks a little roadtrip is in order for this one which will occur June 5th!  Life is good.

  3. What type of brush do you use primarily? I'm just starting to try to learn to paint flowers, and I'm wondering if a different brush might help.
