The first show of the year for me, is traditionally the TVAL’s Annual Sweet-Art Members Show. It is a nice gentle start to kick the year off.

My original intentions were to do a collage with entwining hearts, in honor of the show being in Loveland over Valentine’s Day.

But much to my surprise, a delicate female image appeared in the rice papers I had applied!

I love this painting. Partly because she is what the late Bob Ross used to call, “A Happy Little Accident”. And partly because I feel she was, truly a gift to me.
