100th Post!

I am always feeling like I havn't posted anything on here for a long time, but I've made it up to a whole hundred so I suppose that's something. So this is a good time I thought to post about some of the stuff I will be doing a lot of this year. I framed one of the little 2"x3" paintings a few days ago and I am really happy with my new "fridge art". We put a magnet on the back as well as a sawtooth hanger, so you can put it on your wall or on the fridge. The frame is made of one recessed black strip, with a hardwood frame around that. I like seeing my art on my parents fridge again, it feels like I got an A on a test in school. So here it is, the first fridge art piece of many.

The little paintings have been what I do when I need a break from my still life. I've just about finished it now, it's the first real colored pencil piece I've finished in a while so it was good to dust off the cobwebs. My goal was to finish two still life pieces for the CPSA competition this year, and with two or so months left till the deadline I might be able to get even more done. Here is the still life though, it's still untitled, I wanna think of something silly, like "Rats, I've lost my marbles again." Any other idea's?
So this is a little sneak peak into what a lot of 2011 is going to hold for me, painting, drawing, and peddling my wares. Weee
