Each year, I exhibit four pieces in the annual Norfolk Academy Art Show. These are my pieces this year. The penguin paintings feature a character that may end up in a children's story.

This year, I was in a rush to get these paintings finished by the deadline, so I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about the titles. My family was quite disappointed with my lack of imagination, especially Penguin and Balloon. If you can suggest a better title for that piece, I'd love to hear it. 

If you are local, feel free to stop by for the opening reception, on Saturday, April 26, 2014, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Unfortunately, I won't be there, because I will be away for the second and concluding conference of my Nevada SCBWI Mentorship program. The show runs until the first weekend in May.

  3. Congrats on your terrific pieces for this year, Sylvia! "Penguin With Balloon" is not any worse than "Still Life with Flowers." ;) And, boy, you're quite the jet setter! Have fun at the mentorship retreat!
