Forney Arts Council Top 40

The two paintings below were juried into the Forney Arts Council Top 40 exhibition. The show is running now through October 29 at the Crumbzz in Forney. If you haven't been there and live in the area, it is a delightful bistro open every day from 7:30-2:00.

The first painting below, I posted in process earlier. It seemed to need a few more characters to complete the scene, some are coming and some are going away. Kind of like people in our lives for whatever reasons or for no reason at all. But for each of them, I like to think they are there for a reason!

The second painting started as overlapping bottles. It was fun to fracture and combine them into many different shapes.
