Love the photo of your new collector - a lucky lady indeed! And your sawdust creation is really good. I can see you creating a series of them and selling them at a crafts show. I think this year of adventure is already starting to pay off for you. Bravo!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you all for your kind words and for being so encouraging.  I am a long way from making good art but I enjoy the process a lot. 

A friend who saw my PB painting lessons and who is a key volunteer (see below) is asking me to provide a painting for a silent auction as part of a fund raising from a small but entirely volunteer group who directly support 26 school children, a number of pre- school children, etc. in a small village in Kenya.  I was also ask if I would join the group of volunteer... and I think I will when I return home.

My problem is:
-I don't have any paintings 'on my own', what she saw and like were all PB lessons
-The auction is Nov 6...

Any idea what I could do in the next few days that may be worth offering them?   I wonder if I could do some cherries on my own...  with a twist.  I am not yet good at creation...

I would really appreciate your input and some suggestions... it is a good cause.

 :thankyou:

P.S. I may have to pass and say next year.

Annie,

What an honor to be asked to submit a painting for their fund-raiser.

Maybe you could take your favorite lesson, or easiest lesson, and make enough substitutions to make it your own composition.

Good luck.

 :thankyou: Nolan, Lisa, and Mea.  I will give it a try but I am way over my head.

Liana, photo of the new owner (with permission), not me.

Dinner with friends and friends of friends, lots of chatting and fun, and wine.. and the sawdust painting will stay behind in Colorado.

Mazel tov on being asked to donate - that's a huge compliment to your talent! Could you create another one of these sawdust pieces? I bet it spiel go quickly at the auction!!

Sharon, do you really think that sawdust is serious enough for such an event?  I could do that in time as I used acrylic.

At this time they have no painting in the auction, and they really would like to have one.  They know I am a student but I am afraid to dissapoint them.
Cheers, Annie

Bon!  Lets see if I can do better.

Anyone, please critic colours, composition, etc. 

Should I omit the vase?  Make a pair of paintings?  Shadow (cannot blend sawdust)?

Thank you, you will be helping a good children charity in the process.
