First Place in WAG Truck Challenge

8" x 8" unframed $100 for the pair or $60 each  plus $8 shipping for one or both

Woo hoo!  I had no idea that I would win this challenge, because I really don't "know" trucks.  I did them more to practice watercolor batik than to compete in the challenge. 

Another nice thing happened.  I sold two paintings this week ... one from the Daily Paintworks Challenge's Weekly Challenge and one from our co-op gallery in Anacortes.  Either the economy is turning, or my art is getting better!  I want both to be true ...

I knew these were winners! Loved them both! Congratulations on winning and your sales! Hope the economy is on the upswing. Do you sell a lot on Daily Paintworks? I have been considering it...

Thank you Irina, for your kind words. I am so enjoying the process!

And Thanks, Leada, I have sold only one from there, but am not a member of the site ... I have just particpated in the Challenges so far. I DO like the site, and am considering joining, but have to think about the $$$$ commitment. I think DPW is the better site for folks like me. If I join any, that will be the one.
