"Naughty or Nice?": My submission for a "naughty"Thank you, again, to everyone who took a moment to vote for the sketch I should use for my submission to the Dog Art Today/Mutt Lynch Winery label contest. I started the painting...but couldn't finish it in time. Well, I could, but that would involve me stressing myself out. A lot. On a Friday night after a long work week. In a desperate attempt to make the deadline at midnight. No good; I had to come up with a Plan B.
dog-themed wine label contest
You see, after three bouts of stress- and sleep deprivation-related illness this fall/winter, I'm no longer willing to stress myself out for the sake of artwork (which is why my 30 Dogs project is taking forEVER). I'm learning to put myself first when I need to. So, therefore, I decided to shelf the sketch of the Poodle (perhaps I'll use it in a future contest) and, instead, choose an existing painting from my repertoire to submit. I think this painting of Halo is a funny twist on the "naughty" theme. At least it gives me a chuckle.
Be good to yourself this weekend.
I'll be back to let you know when the contest voting is open!
