New frame filler.

This is the base drawing for the Sacred Heart image I want to paint - sort of a Spanish rendition of the Pompeo Batoni image I like so much.  This is how I paint:  I do a quick sketch or cartoon to guide me and then paint.
The panel is made to fit a Mexican tin nicho frame I have.  - if it turns out, that is.

"Cat" Terry Nelson, 2011

To my suprise "Cat" was accepted by the judges of the Fine Arts Exhibition at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul, Minnesota. The show is considered to be the largest and best juried art show in the area and usually receives a couple thousand entries or more. Believe me - it is an honor just to be accepted. The past couple of years I entered and the work was rejected.  Awards are announced on August 23.
