I never find 4 leaf clovers. My daughter can find 5 or more at a time. Today without even looking, one appeared. I will have excellent luck the rest of the year and so will you. Happy St. Patrick's Day.
I entered a juried competition for the St. Michaels Art League Banners recently and my painting was accepted. It will be scanned, made into a banner which will be hung in town, and posters will be made for the merchants to sell. I wanted to do something bold, colorful and graphic. I knew I wanted to do a boat and thought of Leslie Saeta's style: http://lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/. Leslie does a lot of sailboats and although I live in sailboat country, I prefer the quiet dignity of the workboats.
