Nauvoo Temple Painting Will Go to Salt Lake!

Nauvoo Temple - 10x20
Original Oil Painting on Stretched Canvas

I just received my acceptance letter from the Museum of Church History and Art regarding the 9th International Art Competition.  My painting "Nauvoo Temple" has been selected to move on to the next round of judging.  This means that I need to find a frame STAT and ship it off to Salt Lake City.  Once the Museum receives all the artwork they have selected, there will be one more round of judging to determine which pieces of art will be included in the exhibit and which ones will receive awards.

I participated in the 8th International Art Competition with my painting "Expectations".  I am absolutely thrilled to have made it into the second round of judging again.  I am going to hold my breath and hope that it all works out!

In case anyone is interested, I do have prints available for purchase.  I recently sold out, but I have another shipment coming in the next week or so.  They are giclee, 10x20, and - if I may say so myself - they are beautiful!  They are priced at $40.00 plus $3.00 shipping.  They ship rolled up in a heavy duty cardboard tube.  Please contact me via email (denamcmurdiestudios@gmail.com) if you want more than one.  Here is a PayPal button for easy purchasing.

Good Luck indeed. Will the painting sell at the competition or would it still be available to purchase afterwards. And if so how much would you sell it for?

Said it before, but wanted to congratulate you here too for making it to the next round! Good luck!

It took my breath away when I first saw it and I know it will do the same for others. =)

Thanks everyone! It will be for sale at the show, but if it doesn't sell there, then it is most certainly for sale to anyone. The original is $1,200, and giclee prints are $40.00 for paper, and $80.00 for canvas.

Please please please do a similar painting of the Kirtland temple! I would be the first one to buy it :) I LOVE this painting of the Nauvoo temple. You are incredibly talented!
