Original Art Finished and Found

Hey Friends, I have gotten several small pieces finished up. Let's see what you have done! The painting above is on Masa Rice Paper attached to mat board using acrylics. Lots of water and medium used to make it look like watercolor. I think I'm finished. The image doesn't look as bright or saturated as the original.

This painting I found in a box with several others. I'm famous for packing a box really well (using all the space) and then FORGETTING ABOUT IT. Usually when I come across these boxes again, I have at some point in time searched for these paintings, I slap myself again and again saying "How many times have I told you not to do this!?"
This is also painted on Masa paper. I've been in love with rice paper, specifically Masa for a long time. Vera Dickerson, a local artist and instructor, introduced this paper during a workshop.
Some more art blogs that might be of interest to you are BRUSH-PAPER-WATER. This is Chris Beck's blog and she is always introducing us to some interesting work. Her post today is about Katherine Cartwright. Go look and enjoy your Wednesday!
Happy Trails.

What a happy painting of a child. Is this your granddaughter?

I am terrible about putting things in boxes or leaving stuff in bags. Maybe this is my year to look in the boxes. You found a great horse painting in yours--congratulations.

Really good work.
