Morning has broken

Just got word that this painting has been juried into the Michiana Annual Art Competition at the Box Factory for the Arts in St. Joseph, MI which runs June 20- Aug. 2. It is 24 x 36 oil on canvas and is titled "Morning Has Broken".

Something cool

Messing around trying to get an accurate picture of the color and found out some cool stuff my camera does.  Not helpful at the moment but fun.

Time to stop?

It is hard to know when to call a painting finished, sometimes it just comes down to not knowing what else to do and letting it ride.  Sometimes that is good and prevents overworking something and leaving some freshness to the paint strokes, other times I just don't know.  I keep thinking of what I might do differently and nothing is "dawning" on me so perhaps it is done.  There are parts of this painting that I love and some parts that I only like or are indifferent to- is that enough?

Morning has broken

Very close to completion, just lots of little stuff to finish up and add some glazes.  Worked a lot on the horses.

3 posts for the price of one

Have to wait for some paint to dry to add some more layers but several parts are looking done.  Still work to do on the horses and greenery.  I am calling the sky done.

Little stuff

Probably not too noticeable what I did today, but posting anyway.

Too early for the sky?

I don't think so, it's about time.  Sky is good.
(trying to get the colors to look more true on the screen- taking the saturation down a few notches.)
