I began laying some color in the flower beds. I did not like how much she looked like she had been crushing grapes with her feet. But, I had promised myself to get the little girl and her dress half way done before I began the flowers. Leaving the darkness behind her last.
I can not tell you how hard this has been for me to not jump ahead of myself. So far, I am happy that I am taking it slow. As you can see, her shadowed feet do not stand out so much. When I get more of the flowers and shadows on the ground then the little girls shadowed feet will look better.
The Miamisburg Gallery Show has closed. Once those paintings are picked up (thanks Mom & Dad), I will then enter the Middletown Arts Centers Show this week. Since I do not have to save paintings for the Java, Jazz n' Art, I will be able to enter the two from the Miamisburg Show (Waiting On thee Rain, Pop's Garden) plus Best Friend's Napping. With any luck at least one will be judged in by Mr. Homer O. Hacker.
I will keep you posted.
