Time in the Studio

I've been spending a lot of time in the studio and I'm loving it. I'm committed to going there every day and work on something. It's been great! Every time I walk in the door I think to myself, "I love you little studio"! It's my secret hideaway! My oasis from the outside world and all of it's problems. I can just cast all of my cares away at the door and find peace and joy in these four walls. I'm currently working on a 16 x 20 canvas to submit to the Gilroy Garlic Festival poster contest. The first prize is $750.00. In addition to the cash prize your picture is also printed on all of the souvenirs (posters, cups, t-shirts, shot glasses, etc..) for the festival. I have a friend who enters almost every year. She won the contest a couple of years ago and was so excited. As far as I know there has never been a collage submitted to the contest. I think my picture will be different from the usual type of entries. It will be interesting to see how open minded the judges are. Keep you fingers crossed for me!
