Thank you for weighing in with your opinions regarding whether or not to keep the two figures in the newer version of Railroad Ave. for the Google Street View Paint-Off  painting challenge.  It was nearly unanimous, with only one against.   My favorite of those posted to the challenge so far this one, (scroll down to the burro).     But I hope you will take a look at all the paintings and see what people have done with these street view images.    Thanks to multi-talented entrepreneur and artist, Kay Zahn for taking on this art project and providing the gift card.

This week's painting, Reflections, is a return, if only briefly, to oils.  Some months ago I found two very nice carved, wood frames at a garage sale.  I finally painted something for the smaller one, which is today's post and which seemed to call for oils.

It's official.  As of today I am now  a "listed" artist, with  Artprice!  Artprice is the French company that provides worldwide art market information.   I still don't fully understand what all this means for me, except that  it is supposed to be a good thing!
