I finally settled on the five pieces I wanted to submit to the Biennial Member Exhibit at Paint Creek Center for the Arts. Last night when I started to put the CD together I realized that a few of the images were larger than they wanted so I needed to wait until daylight today to retake a few photos in smaller format. (I can no longer use my old photo program with the newer OS...it just isn't supported anymore...sucks, but I found a workaround for today.) I ran the entry over to the post office and it should make it to PCCA in plenty of time. I hope I get one or two pieces into this show. I submitted: Cat King, Creatura Lupus Ursus, Djubi, Pup, and Time for a Nap.
|Cat King (3D is allowed 2 pics...this is the main one)|
|Creatura Lupus Ursus (Latin for "the creation of a bear wolf")|
|Djubi (he also got 2 views, this is the main one)|
|Time for a Nap|
This evening I have been working on darkening the outlines of the three young creatures in one of the repurposed collages. This collage is the only one that is made on a watercolor painting on heavy watercolor paper. It has been a challenge from the very beginning because of the warping and other minor issues. I like these little guys a lot but I need to figure out what they are about...give them a back story...so that I can do a little more with them (hopefully).

|done with this part for now|
|first little guy -- his nose is hidden under his arm|
|middle guy -- I love his little jacket|
|third guy -- kind of badger-like -- I need to figure the rest of him out|
