I could have taken the easy route and submitted the Native American woman, but that was a class project and not original art. There are no rules about not doing that in a student exhibit, but I knew I would feel better if I came up with something new.
This is my house, done with a fine tip waterproof marker (Pigma Micron) and watercolor. One reason for choosing this is that it is very different from each of the other entries. We don't live in the middle of nowhere where the sky blends into the lawn. I am just giving my neighbors their privacy. Also, it made for an easier painting.
The entry form has been completed and mailed which means I should probably try cooking again tomorrow. My poor husband suffers for my art.
