6 x 6 paintings submitted

Well, I submitted my paintings to the 6"Squared juried exhibition at Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa, California. There were almost 1200 entries into this popular exhibition and they only select a few hundred, so I may not get accepted, but I'm OK with that. I am going up against nationally known artists who have been at this a lot longer than I have, but I can always use these in a local gallery if they don't get accepted. Any time spent painting is a learning experience, so it is not wasted time.
I will know by the end of this week. Fingers crossed!

I'm thinking 6 x 6!

Hello friends. Well I got my shipment of 6 x 6 inch museum quality canvas panels from raymar (www.raymarart.com ) today and I am sketching out ideas for 6 x 6 inch paintings.

Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa California is having its second show of paintings that are all 6 x 6 in size. The first one was hugely successful, so I thought I would submit a few for this show and see if they get juried into the show. There are hundreds of super talented nationally known artists submitting as well so the competition is fierce, but I thought I would at least try.

Randy Higbee is owner of King of Frame - www.kingofframe.com and sells awesome frames as well as being owner of Randy Higbee Gallery - www.randyhigbeegallery.com . Wish me luck and I will post some of the paintings soon.
