|"Last Traces of Snow II" - 6 x 12 inches - oil on canvas|
This is a 2nd stab at painting the marshes at Plum Island. For whatever reason, I've always gravitated towards painting on square canvases (which may explain some of my quirky personality traits), but this time I decided to take a big leap and used a rectangular format. I survived the experience and may even try it again some day :)
In other news, I was very pleased to receive an Honorable Mention for my painting "Afternoon Snack" in the Westford Regional Art Event. My second entry, "Cat Nap", sold shortly after the show so it was great news all around.Finally, congratulations to Leslie Thomas who is the winner of my April give-away!
