Time Away

This poor blog has really been neglected of late, as has been my art. Took a trip back to the big city to visit family and friends then, for several days after returning, didn't feel well. All that combined to keep me from blogging or painting. Just finished a painting which won't be posted here as it may just be a gift for a family member. Don't want to ruin the surprise!
I think my next project will be small works, in various media, on 2"x3" artist's cards. Will be interesting to see if I can work that small but should be fun. There are so many different things I would like to do with art, in all kinds of media. Seems there will always be something else to try.
Our local art league is having their annual juried show next weekend. This coming week will be full with preparations. I feel quite fortunate to have one of my paintings accepted into the show. It is like I have already won a prize! Have heard that this judge likes abstract works, even though she doesn't paint in that style. In that case, very little chance of my painting winning any awards. Would be icing on the cake, since I really do feel excited just to be in the show at all!
All of this means that I won't be having any time to paint this week but should be inspired by all of the wonderful art in the show.
