50/50 Again!

I am pleased to announce that I have been juried into this year's 50/50 Show at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, CA. Starting Monday, May 17th I will be posting a new painting everyday, for 50 days. My theme this year will be Objects of Desire.

This blog was started a year ago to post my 50 birds and at that time I decided to keep blogging for a year to see what would happen. Well needless to say, it has put me in touch with artist friends all over the world and has kept me on my toes in terms of staying on top of my game. How great is that? I look forward to another year (at least) and if you haven't done so already, please find me on Facebook.

And be sure to check in everyday, if you can, on this 50 day journey.

    I'm excited to see your new 50/50 series develop.

  4. Honestly, Silvina, it just popped into my head- I don't know why. But it turned out to be one of my favorites from the series. I'm glad you'll be checking in during this 50/50!
