2 new paintings.

The first is a painting for the Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge. Cupcakes!!

Here is the photo that was provided by Karin Jurick for the challenge.

The next is a photo of my painting called "Ooo sugar!" It is acrylic on 12x4x1.5 canvas. Giant ants added by my imagination! The Different Strokes blog has hundreds of great artists who participate in the challenges. You should take a few minutes and check it out!

The second is a new challenge blog I am doing for the first time. It is called Following the Masters. This was a challenge to attempt to capture the feeling of western art. I had a simple idea, this is a small painting acrylic on 6x6 canvas. Titled Saguaro Sunset. This is a newer challenge and not as many participate... yet. But also great artists to be found! This one won't be for sale, my hubby Joe LOVES cacti, he liked this one a lot, I decided to give it to him to put in his teaching studio! I love you honey!

Ok, well that is all for today (or tonight)! Be well... Tj.

Hi TJ. You get the Bluest of Blue Ribbons for your DSFDF cupcakes. When the cupcakes are gone you can truly say that "my ants ate them." :-)

GOOD JOB! Dang, wish I'd thought of ants. I'm too boring.

I really enjoyed seeing your cupcakes on DSFDF. The addition of the ants was the greatest.
