Berries, boats & red

I hoped the poinsettia painting would be dry enough to take to Salem tomorrow, for entry in the Something Red 2017 show. It is not at all dry. Even with medium in the paint. So, plan B. Paintings must be focused on the color red, to be displayed during the holidays. I DO have a ¬†painting with lots of red: Strawberries. And Red Boat. So, I’m cheering up a bit, looking forward to entering one of them. I just gave the Red Boat a coating of varnish. Should be dry by morning. It’s fun having a deadline. Yes, it is.
