Salado Creek - nfs
One thing I really loved about Jill's approach was she gave us full permission to do some really ugly paintings, even if they were all ugly. Not that I absolutely HATE this one, but there are some things wrong with it. The main tree ends right smack dab in the middle (vertically), and it may be a bit too far to the right, and the far bank could use ... something, I'm still not sure what. Another thing Jill talked about was the need to edit a scene, and when and where to do it. I am including a photo I took of the scene right after I painted this (below) to give you an idea of what I changed.
Tonight I am heading out to the Greenhouse Gallery in San Antonio to attend the awards banquet for the Salon International Exhibit. I seriously doubt I'll win anything, but I'm going with a friend and it should be fun! I won't be going to the reception tomorrow as it is my husband's birthday, but I'll see the show at the banquet tonight.
