Thanks, Everyone. This "Golden Girl" painting received a First Place In Oils at the Glendale Art Competition, 2012. It also sold, both of which made me extremely happy.
Congratulations on top award and especially the sale. "Golden Girl" is worthy.
It is so perfect, I couldnt stop looking at the painting. I am not surprised that it won first place and sold! Congradulations .
The painting is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your technique. I work in watercolour, acrylic and I am starting to work on glazing with oils. Oils are very new to me so I am working on technique to achieve the results you have achieved..detailed realism. I really love the light and shadow you have in the work.
Thank you, Sharon, eubie, and esther.
That painting did not get to hang on my wall very long, at all.
Forget local! Aim higher, looks great!
Very Nice Piece! lots of work. Good luck at the competition! Thanks for sharing the process
Congratulations you won!
