We are one week into the new year today.  I meant to post earlier than this. I don't usually choose theme words for the year, but this year I have.  I chose the word earlier, but as of today, Jan 7 I have even more reason why this word is appropriate.  My word is FOCUS.  This year I am planning to focus more on art.  Specifically painting, oils, acrylics, and watercolor.  The reason I chose focus was because I tend to get a bit "scattered" with what I am doing.  Yesterday, though, I found out that two paintings I submitted in a local Fine Art show were accepted.  This is a juried show, and I had heard that the competition was quite tough.  I made it past the jury and am in.  I didn't win any awards, but that's okay.  I MADE IT IN!  I feel like I graduated!  The only downside is that these two paintings had to be available for sale, and I had really wanted to keep them.  They may not sell, and then again, they may.  We shall see.

Here's two more for you, though not watercolor.

Such a fun way to draw.
