Driftless Area Landscape paintings

I told them I would paint two for their Spring Green Area Artist Coalition fund raiser.
It's a lottery.
$30.00 gives you a certificate, 
which when picked, allows you to have your pick of ALL the 8"x8" canvases 
created by local area artists. 
I keep reminding myself that offering these is a good thing, for me.  
It does get the babies out and visible, 
since they are seen by no one on my walls, 
except during the Fall Art Tour. 
I don't have a gallery.
SO, this is a good thing.....
I do wish I would be able to make the frames for them....
which might make this giving them away easier. 
I do make good frames.

County Fair Paintings...pigs

I'm just starting to revisit county fairs for paintings.

 It's only a cell phone picture, but you can sort of get the idea. 
Below you can see the frame I'm making for it.
That's "Iowa" in the top frame.
Below is "The Pigs".
I don't have a photo of it in it's frame yet.
I do have prints of "The Pigs"..
