Thinking of Spring

unfinished, 16x20, oil on canvas

Angels Above Us, 36x48, oil on canvas, 2006

So now that my 'painting a day' hopes are dashed, what should I work on? The Spring Salon is in April. I had a painting almost ready for entry last year that I could finish for this year. This is a juried show at the Springville Museum of Art and is really prestigious and hard to get in. I did get into their Religious and Spiritual Show of 2006 with Angels Above Us, but the Spring Salon is harder to get in. Upwards of 1,000 entries are submitted by the states best artists. My chances are slim but it's a dream of mine to be in the show. Little Jumping Guy (working title) is my best hope at this point. Each artist can enter two works. That is my goal... two paintings entered.
