Whoa - it's been a while!!
First, thank you so much to everyone who voted and left comments on my last post! The poll was about 2 to 1 for "Aspen Grove", and the comments leaned heavily toward the same painting. So, "Aspen Grove" it is - I'll deliver it, along with three other paintings, to the Loveland Museum next week. I'm crossing my fingers that it shows well. This show is an invitational of some of Colorado's best painters and sculptors, so it's a lot of exposure and I like to make sure I don't embarrass myself! The other painting is with my local gallery since it's a local scene - hopefully it sells.
Anyhow, I apologize for not posting much this month. I haven't been feeling well for a few weeks, and as such have had little motivation to stand at an easel. I haven't touched a paintbrush in two weeks (well, except to varnish a bunch of paintings), and most of my effort has gone to varnishing, framing, and delivering a bunch of paintings. April and May are slow times in the resort towns where I sell my work (mud season = no ski traffic, and no summer traffic), so I'm not beating myself up too much over taking some time off. Hopefully I'll be feeling good enough to get back to painting tomorrow.
Thanks again for all the insightful comments and opinions!
