Art of the day

Every week the EBSQ site runs a theme, and every day of that week a piece of art is chosen to be featured that day. There is no voting, no expectation of the piece being sold, it is just a celebration of the EBSQ artists' work as it pertains to these random themes.

This week, the theme was "'Tis the Season", and the piece featured was mine!

This piece is called "Virgin" and it is the Virgen de Guadalupe, the same that hung in my church when my son was having all of his surgeries. Whether or not there was actually an appearance in Mexico (or in Lourdes, for that matter) is a matter of conjecture, but I believe that the message of faith, peace and hope to a suffering world, is a good one.

November Pieces

This month was a nice one, and I got to work another swap show, which I love. This one was the annual Portrait Swap , and my partner was S. Key.

Here are the ones she did of me:

Two of them won awards!

And here are the two I did of her:

I really enjoy working swaps because it means I get to take home the lovely pieces that my partner does, and that some of my work finds a new home. That makes me all tingly and happy inside.

I also entered two Photographs in the Bark Show:

And one of my home city in the Two Tones show:

I won a Patron's Mention award for this one! Yay, and thank you, fellow EBSQers!
