Herd Of M and M's, 6x6 Oil

Another NFS, scheduled to go to the DeBlois Gallery Itty Bitty Holiday Show.
After the show $100 + $10 S&H, via Paypal


After I painted this (and I thought I would lose my mind painting these tiny candies) I stepped back and thought it looked like a herd of M&M's - probably escaping their fate in my studio!

I had a sleepless night last night agonizing over this show. I ordered frames ($$!, you know how it is) and then before I went to bed I decided to read the prospectus (always a good time to do it, after you've started painting for the show and have ordered the frames!). The outside dimensions cannot exceed 36". OMG! I'm over - I'm WAY over!!!! Couldn't sleep. Got up before dawn and was scouring the internet for tinier canvases and frames... then around 7 a.m. I looked again, and this time I used the calculator (yeah, I'm mathematically challenged, that's right!) and... um... all my hysteria was for naught. I'm UNDER the limit. Do you ever do this to yourself?
