And we’re off and running or writing …

Fun news from December  — my Rhyming Story – “ONCE IN A LIFETIME SAVOURY PIE” got me through to the 2nd round of the NYC Midnight competition.  I’ve posted it in case you’d like to read it. This competition provides prompts for genre, theme and feeling AND a 500 word limit PLUS a time limit for submission.  The second round came right on the heels of the announcement and so it’s long gone.  We’ll wait now for the judges to decide who continues – that’s coming Jan. 31.   I like surprises and deadlines so it’s kind of up my alley. Oh, and I like to rhyme things.

Moose in the Woods

Oil on canvas.  A large canvas (4 X 5), which was initially rather daunting, but once he started to come to life it just made perfect sense.

I love a moose.

Gorilla (of my dreams)

And I’ve always loved gorillas.  I think we (as a species) pale in comparison to many others.  Again – a large canvas but not as large as the moose.

Oil on canvas.

Natural Sculpture

Have been playing around with sculptures made from natural materials.  Gathered and waxed (just as I did as a child) maple leaves and then pressed but then I went just a bit further into uncharted presentation territory.  I’m happy with the result.  They are so sturdy and beautiful.
