 Here's my display booth from a week and a half ago at the T & P Valentine Vendors fundraiser for our local (wonderful) art museum, The Grace.  I have never done this before and it was quite an experience!  I sold a couple of paintings and met some fabulous people.  I may even teach some art classes as a result. 

 

Here is my friend Tracy Gand who had the booth across the way from me.  You can see her vibrant work here.  Isn't she cute! Sorry for the lousy camera photo.  Kenny and I are signed up for a  photography workshop in March in the Texas hill country. I am really hoping to increase my skills!
 


Last week I spent with my parents in West Texas.  I'm blessed with such a wonderful family. Here are some paintings I did a while back and didn't have a chance to post.  I'll photograph and list them in my Etsy store later, am having camera issues right now.

Tender original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Tender by Polly Jones
When Kenny and I rented our first house, I made black and white curtains for our living room/studio.  These striped curtains figured into a lot of my paintings.  I'd forgotten how much I love painting stripes until doing this one.  It's connected to the whole polka dot obsession I suppose.  I finally got up the gumption to tear into my antique book on prayer for collage purposes.  The language is so flowery it seemed appropriate.
