This post is number 100 in my blogging career.
When I started this facet of my art life, I was fairly intimidated by the requirements, and by the number of posts so many of my more verbose friends were piling up. To ease my fluttering heart, I promised myself (and you) that I wouldn't add to the cacaphony of the blogosphere by posting willy-nilly several times a week, or maybe worse yet, by posting only when the mood hit me.
I've kept my promise. I've posted once each week for 100 weeks. And to celebrate this achievement, I promised you that I'd draw a name out of my special name-drawing hat. The owner of the name drawn out of the name-drawing hat would win an honest-to-goodness original P. Scarborough painting.
This 8x10 oil was painted on site at a little pond here in town. It's a lovely little piece, and quite honestly, I'm gonna miss it.
My name-drawing hat also serves as my plein aire painting hat. It seemed appropriate that it be used for this event. (Here I am, warming it up for the big drawing. Wouldn't want to put valuable names in a cold hat.)
