Black and White Show
Today I dropped off my painting "Zebra Stripes" at the Arlington County Board offices. This is from a juried show called "Black and White" and my painting won 2nd place. The theme was challenging for me because I love color! But I ended up having a great time painting this one. Sometimes these themed shows make the artists push themselves in doing something out of the comfort tone.
