Canyonlands - Absolute Final!



I received good feedback on the last "final" rendition of this painting and adjusted the foliage to show distance better and balance it on all sides of the painting. I think this is done now and don't want to keep messing with it because it will become a muddy mess if I do.

Based on the extremely favorable comments and critiques I have received on this, I entered it into a juried show, I won't hear anything about rejection or acceptance for a few weeks, but I thought it worthy of a try, anyway.

Good luck with the show, Susan. I think "Canyonlands" will do well.

Thanks Michelle! After the positive comments I received I decided this was the "one" to enter. Hopefully, the judges will see what you all do!

Susan: Your paintings are beautiful. It makes me want to jump in the RV and take off to the canyonlands. Ann

Susan, This is a real winner. VERY striking, splendid color. Good luck and keep those brushes wet and moving.

Ann, Doris and Sandy - thanks so much for your comments on this one. I am hoping for acceptance in the upcoming juried show I entered it into, but if rejected I feel it is still a good painting based on the critiques and comments I have received. I know I am more pleased with this canyon painting than any I have tried in the past.

This is one of your best paintings and I am so glad you entered it and it got into a show. It is deserving of an award. Got my fingers crossed for you.
