As you can see I changed the background color of the last painting I posted. I just felt everything was too cold and it needed more color. Backgrounds are always challenging and once I posted it I thought "it's just not pretty" So what do you think? Improved? Should I head back to the easel? Painting is so hard, lol. I love it and the challenging part of it keeps me coming back.

I had such a great day today! I went to Waynesville Ohio and competed in a Quick Draw. We had three hours and you can draw or paint. I chose to paint and completed a 8" x 10" in two hours. Sometimes I think it's best to quick early and chance picking it to death just because you have time. I framed my very wet oil painting and set it on my easel. I won! Feels so great to be coming home a winner. It's up and down with this painting life, something good happens and then rejection. Today's a wonderful day!
