For my Blogger Friends
First of all thank you for all the positive feedback on my landscape from my trip. I'm flabbergasted because I don't/didn't do landscapes because I didn't think I was very good.
Secondly, I know I am over due for a contest give-away on my blog so I painted this yesterday. To make up for it, this is a bigger painting; 8x10 on canvas board. No palette knife work here like the previous. Thank you Sam Dolman for asking! I did a little palette knife work on the top clouds.
This is based on a photo I took while we were winding our way through the tourist traffic. Our prisoners both had lived in Nevada, hence the trip to NV jails, and were giving us bits and pieces of info on the Hoover Dam.
For the contest, I'm looking for ideas. Instead of a couple days like my Facebook contest, I'm thinking a week. It could be easy like "how much was that first pet commission with the two dogs?" or a little more complicated and esoteric such as the best way to promote my ASAP blog and program. Please give me suggestions. This is YOUR contest.
Happy Easter to all....
