 :thankyou: Patricia and Cath! I'll definitely keep everyone posted as soon as I hear...if they don't want this painting than I can donate it to our local PBS station's annual art on air art auction - so one way or another it will go to a good cause...
Cheers,
Sharon

Excellent getting the papery feel to the petals.  Wow Sharon, this excels.  :yippee:

So this painting did not make the cut for the art show. Apparently, from the rumors I heard, the judge had his artist favorites in mind before even seeing the art. And tends to like abstract over realism. Oh well - can’t win them all! I’m having this framed now and hope to find a buyer on my own!
Cheers,
Sharon

Oh! Sharon, what a disappointment that your Poppy never made the cut. However, you will find a loving home for it, of that I am sure.

Thanks everyone! I know after it's framed and I post it on FB it will get some interest...otherwise, I have a show at a gallery in Sept so I can always save it for that!!
Cheers,
Sharon

And here’s the poppy framed - 24x29”! And check our the triple mat - love that little touch of red! Sadly, it wasn’t selected for the show but I’m hopeful it will find a home soon!
Cheers,
Sharon

This will sell.  Not only for the art but it is very decorative. :clap: :clap: :clap:  Sorry it didn't make the show.  Foolish them.   :P
