Two more acrylic paintings for the upcoming show in Graham, Texas. I'm preparing paintings for a group show at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center in Graham, Texas.  
Both of the above paintings were done in Carmel CA in November at the Carmel Visual Arts Center in the acrylic workshop with Patti Mollica.
As I am getting ready, varnishing and framing, and wiring I now have approximately 50 different sizes to bring to the show along with my painting peeps from Canvas by Canvas. The painting below was done by the painting friends of CBC.
The artists of Canvas by Canvas will be exhibiting their personal paintings at the Graham Old Post Office Museum and Art Center from January 17, 2015, through February 28th, with artwork themed around Food, Glorious Food!  All paintings will reflect the theme with scenes of food and drink items. The exhibit will also include 2 or 3 of the Canvas by Canvas group's collaborative paintings relating to the theme. The month-long event will kick off with a reception from 6 to 8 PM on the evening of Saturday, January 17th, and everyone is invited.
 Journal Pages:
Journal pages tie into some of my New Years Resolutions. I wanted to keep track of food eaten and began a separate journal of all food eaten and that got boring right quick so I decided to incorporate food into my daily journal and maybe add one food from the day and keep account of calories eaten with the app My Fitness Pal with the hope of some 2015 weight loss..(so far not so good as some time during the day it gets to non thinking stress eating). Another resolution I wanted to read the Bible through this year by using a plan for the iPad called the YouVersion and I've decided to add some image from the day's passage. I may have to add an art supply or anything else that happens in my day. The crosshatched areas are about a friend with some health issues. This journal is a Strathmore Visual Journal and a mixed media 9x12. I like it and I am using a Lamy Joy with Brown Noodlers Ink.
