I'm a beach lover - sun, sand, salt and our fabulous Gulf water! April's post presented a small landscape with a rusting John Deere bicycle. That old bike was such a challenge, couldn't resist another go at it. The large canvas certainly needed paint and a change was needed for an "over the sofa" painting in our living room. I would attempt a fantasy beach setting and place the bike somewhere within. If the painting proved successful, on the wall it would go! Last week when the call to artists went out for the Mini/Maxi show the painting was entered!
Happy Dance! MY BEACH was awarded "First Merit" last evening at the Charlotte County Visual Arts Center's Maxi/Mini theme show reception! Thank you Judge Karl Hollander! Public viewing December 8 - December 31, at 210 Maude Street, Punta Gorda, Fl.
