Here we are in "season" in SW Florida. The snowbirds and tourists are here. The roads are full of traffic, it takes longer to get anywhere. It's also the season for some of the major art shows sponsored by the local art leagues. The Pine Island Art Show and Sale is in the final countdown and will be receiving paintings on the 13th of February. Just a little over a week to go. The painting of sea grapes in today's blog was one that I thought was finished a year or more ago. I had it framed and hanging in WildChild gallery where it languished and was finally brought home. I decided to play with it and used some collage papers on it, added some dark areas and voila! it has new life. I wish I had a picture of the original because then you could see the difference, but I can't find one in my archives so far. I have decided it will be my entry in the Mixed Media division of the Pine Island art show. If it gets a ribbon, I'll let you know.
