Thought I'd let you know that I won a second prize in mixed media
($100) for my painting "Seal Squabble" at the Irving Art Association
Annual Juried Competition in May. It's s suminagashi that I created
and added the paintings of seals to. They are rendered in a
semi-abstract way to harmonize with the swirling design. You can view
it on the IAA website at
http://irvingart.org/gallery/IAA2007/IAA2007.htm . Click on the

I have done other paintings in the same style using humpback whales
and seabirds. Suminagashi works well with aquatic subjects. Usually I
use a stencil to save a place for the painted image, but in the case
of "Seal Squabble" the seals were put in afterwards. In some cases I
think that works even better. I was able to take advantage of the
artefacts in the design.
