Nibblefest Entry "Sisters in the Trees"

Here is my newest painting on muslin. I could not resist listing it on ebay for nibblefest, although it has been months since I listed anything on ebay. It's 9x12, will need to be framed or sewn into something, like a purse or a pillow. It's a little more rustic than my usual work, but I thought it looked so cool on the fabric, I stopped when it told me to.

Nibblefest is an art contest on ebay where everything starts at 99 cents, and the artist who gets the most unique bidders wins. I came in second once, years ago. It's a good way for new people to find my work, but sometimes it falls flat and one of my little paintings goes for $4 or something. But oh well, that's the way it is sometimes.

The theme this month for nibblefest is Trees, Rivers. You can't see it, but there is a raging river behind those sisters.
