I finally have scans of two more paintings I completed during my residency last summer.  These were meant to be studies for some ideas I was putting together for my thesis work.  They just weren't what I needed for thesis so I set them aside until recently when I needed work to submit for a juried show.  I submitted one of them fully expecting it to be rejected but it was accepted AND it won an award! 

Both are oil on birch panel.
