Just finished

Here's a peak at my latest series of sea creatures painted on birch wood. This is the first batch that I made from scratch. Sawing, sanding, and routering a keyhole in the back for hanging proved to be a lot harder to do than I thought, but allowed me to make larger random sizes.
Prints and originals will be available online hopefully by the end of the week.

I also wanted to thank all of you who came by my booth at the art festival last weekend. I'm still in recovery mode but also feeling a little high about the whole experience. Everyone was so friendly and supportive. The art jury awarded me the prize for "best acrylic/oil Painter" for the show. What an unexpected surprise!
I was so busy all day that I pretty much collapsed into a ball when I got home.

Looking forward to doing it again next year. (sorry I didn't have a chance to snap any pictures)
