BE Square – Spring 2016 – Frog Invasion

15BFrogCollage

These are my set of 15 acrylic paintings for the 2016 Spring Be Square Challenge, that was held at the Fourth Wall Studio & Art Gallery, Lewiston, ID. 13 of the 15 sold, very exciting!

The Be Square Challenge started with the (now closed) Creative Shop and Myndie from the Fourth Wall has continued the tradition. This will be the fourth year, and this Spring Challenge is the first of two this year – the second will be on Small Business Saturday in November (after Black Friday).

What is the Be Square Challenge? Artists are encouraged to create 15 artworks on 8″x8″ canvasboard. They have 21 days to complete the work, more or less. All artwork is for sale at a set price of $30.

I decided on frogs as my subject this time around. I adhered patterned cotton fabric onto the canvasboard panels, sealed with matte medium. I then transferred and painted the frogs using acrylic paints. I love painting frogs! Especially tree frogs and poison dart frogs.
