|Original watercolor on paper 6 x6 Reserved|
This week I'm starting a series of 6 x 6 paintings in preparation for Randy Higbee's 6x6 show. I plan on painting several and maybe having all of you help me decide which ones to enter. I think I'll put them to a vote when I'm done.
Today's painting is a 6x6 of an abbey in Glasgow. I took this picture when we were visiting Scotland. We were walking through the town and we stumbled on to this abbey. It was one of those Kodak moments.

Brian was on a trip for work last week, so the boys and I packed it up and headed to Charleston, South Carolina to visit my Mom. We had a great time and conveniently my Mom owns a frame shop
, sooooo while we were there I framed some pics. I framed my entry into the Energen competition in Birmingham and my entry headed for the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art.
Hope you have a great week and check back I should be posting paintings more frequently.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love the painting of the abbey. I almost feel as if I can wander in it for days! :-)ReplyDelete
So beautiful, Carrie...and how convenient that your Mom owns a frame shop. Nice!ReplyDelete
I like the abbey's intricate shapes! I'd vote for that one.ReplyDelete
I thought I had already made a comment on the lovely painting, the gorgeous frames and the wish for luck! I don't know what happened!!! I think the abbey is different enough - the judge would definitely pay attention!ReplyDelete

carrie, this is just stunning! great perspective.ReplyDelete
This is amazing! I don't think I'd be brave enough to attempt such a complex structure!ReplyDelete
Your paintings look lovely framed too :0)
I have also been very busy for the last couple of weeks and haven't had time to paint anything! :0)
