I wanted to make sure to complete this weeks challenge. Since I have only missed one. I didn't really miss it, it's in my sketch book, but I didn't get it e-mailed in time. Karin asked that we paint this upside down. Which is a great exercise. It forces you to just paint shapes, not what you think you see, but what you do see.
I sold the three handbag painting from last weeks challenge at my show! It was really cool that some of my family from Santa Rosa got to come and my mom and dad, aunt, my good friends. Seeing them was icing on the cake...Life is good.
The past two weekends have been really good for my art spirit. I was at Leedo Gallery in Gilroy on Sunday Nov. 9th and that was lots of fun! I had my very first outdoor booth at the Clo La Chance winery art and wine festival in Gilroy. WOW, that was way fun!!! I met lots of people and got only postive comments on my work, as well as sales! I am so happy that even in this scary economy people are still wanting to enjoy and own art. I sold a lot of my little mini paintings which I love to paint. I really enjoy going back and forth between painting really small and then big. I like painting with different mediums, watercolor and water-soluble oils and acrylics. It's like being able to play two instruments. Thanks to all of the people who bought paintings I hope you enjoy owning them. I have posted pictures of both events and pictures of my booth and some of my mini paintings.

I almost didn't make the challenge this week. I am crazier than usual trying to prepare for my first outdoor art show this weekend. I have lots of mini original paintings to sell and my watercolors. I am busy making my greeting cards. I hope to post some of the art I will be selling at this show, next week. I also will not be listening to any of the news media regarding the economy being in the stinker! Hopefully people will still want to enjoy and own original art. Postive thoughts only. I am glad I finished Karin's challenge, I am trying not to miss any of them, they are very positive!!

Karin Jurick has started a new blog, Different strokes for different folks, she posts a new photo each week and then posts all the different versions sent to her by her fellow artists...it's so much fun! I don't know how she has the time to do all she does and still find time to paint her masterpieces, she is an awsome painter. These are my contributions.
