A Colorful Portrait, PennyFest Auctions, and a Free Painting
DPW CHALLENGE: I painted this 8x10 using Golden Liquid Acrylics on Canvas Board: A Cuban Farmer wearing a Straw Hat and smoking a cigar, using Stephen Bennett's unique style of realism using interpretive color, done for a DPW challenge using Ion Sheramet's photo for reference "a picture of a Cuban tobacco farmer taken in the Viñales Valley" - What a fun challenge! I loved painting it.
For Auction on Daily Paintworks, Bid here.
PENNY AUCTIONS:2.5 x 3.5 inches. Palm Tree by the sea. I have added 13 ACEO cards to the PennyFest on Ebay, all auctions starting at one penny. I have so many of these little gems, that I don't mind giving them away. Here is the link if you want to bid on any of them. The 7 day auction started on Sunday, so it will end on Sunday this week the 23rd. They are practically FREE. You can also search on ebay for PAF or Pennyfest and see dozens of other penny auctions by other artists.
Speaking of FREE ART, I am offering one of my original PAINTINGS on my blog this week, and the current contest also ends this Sunday. Just go to the blog post HERE and tell me why you want to adopt the artwork, "Cups and Bowls." I will even pay the shipping. No cost to enter.
