Crazy Lady Series
I'm working hard to get ready for my first open house in 5 years! Scheduled for Mother's Day weekend, May 12 and 13th, my time is limited, but I'm crunching in every minute so that this will be my best show ever! I'm still enjoying paintiing cartoon-like ladies with abstract backgrounds. This one is called , "The Morning After". I teach this in many of my classes, and it's been a real hit! The finishing detail work is down with either colored pencils or colored markers. I love doodling! This painting will be a part of my martini and wine painting corner at my show. I'm having the show professionally staged by a designer friend of mine. So exciting! Hope you can all come!!!
