Poppies and Irises, 7x5"

Poppies and Irises, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss
  This small painting and twenty six more of mine will be at the Onondaga Art Guild Spring Show and Sale this coming weekend.

  If you live in the area, stop by and support the local arts. It's really a nice show and there will work from thirty artists.

Two Small Pastels (5x7")

Sunlit, pastel on Ampersand Pastelboard by Adriana Meiss
   For quite some time I have been thinking of painting the scene above. The arrival of spring finally pushed me to the task. This painting and the one below were intended for an upcoming guild show and sale at the end of the month, but I like them so much that I'm not sure I'm ready to frame them yet.

I often tell myself not to fall in love with my own paintings because the best ones are yet to come. Sometimes it's hard to live by your own maxims... What do you do with your best ones?
