After Shrimpfest, I finished up getting ready to deliver my art to a friend to hang in a local art show at a local bank. First Community Bank has a beautiful gallery space where 4 local artists exhibit their work for a 3 month period. Mine will be up all summer. The opening is this evening! Yeah! I have 3 portraits and 3 sea birds hanging. I'll upload some opening pictures later.
This is "Majestic Bird" - another piece which originated with a photo - not mine but a public domain one. This is hanging at Island Art Association's Nouveau Art "America the Beautiful.
This is a work in progress. The first attempt went into the garbage - the shades were all wrong. This one - I've got to work on the eyes some then make the background and then finish up with machine quilting.
