100th Post!

Fall Medley - 11 x 14
Oil on Canvas
Copyright 2010 Dena McMurdie

This is my 100th post! I can't believe that I actually have had that much to write about! When I started this blog, I was worried that I would run out of things to post about really fast, but I've come to realize that there are endless possibilities for posts. For me, the trick is to find the time to write about them ;)

The above image is the finished and complete painting "Fall Medley". I am very happy that I went back and reworked the different parts of this painting until I got them right. I love the analogous color scheme - okay I just love the warm side of the color wheel! I also love texture, and this painting has a lot of exciting texture in it. I had to paint the bottom half of this painting three times before I was satisfied with it. I painted both barns twice as well. I am happy that I did though, because there is no point of quitting on a painting when you are so close to having it be an exciting painting.

I've entered this painting into the 15th Annual Richard Schmid Live Art Auction. I don't know if it will get accepted, but Richard Schmid is once again selecting all the pieces for the Live Auction, and it sure would be fun to have him choose mine!

Oh, very nice. I hope this painting gets accepted into the Richard Schmid Auction. I think it is very nice.
