I like to set aside my studio paintings for a few days or even weeks to "observe" them. Inevitably I see things I want to change once I detach myself from the creative mindset. My left brain is much more critical. I'm getting some artwork ready for the Weems Galleries pastel show later this month, so here is an example of before and after photos of my painting Morning on the Uncompaghre.
Not a lot of difference but now I feel it's ready to be scanned and framed for the show.

Here's how the painting looked at the end of Day 2.

There must have been some kind of disturbance in The Force this week, and my stars have realigned in a most favorable configuration. I won a First Place in the 51st Alpine Artists Holiday Show on July 28, and the Judge actually used my painting as an example to illustrate how he selected the winners. The next day I found out one of my entries was selected for the Paint the Parks Top 100 national tour, and the other entry was a runner up. I also received an acceptance into the 2011 Mile High National Show. And last but not least, I received a check from one of my galleries for 3 paintings that sold. A big thank you to my lucky stars.
