Okay! Now my painting is done.

After evaluating my painting after a few days I decided it needed some more splashes of "life".  It needed more color to reflect the sunset.  Now it's done and ready for the final finish and framing.

Wow! Julie. I really like it. What is cool is I could see the sunset in the flowers without having trying to look for it. Your painting conveyed this so well it was natural to see it. Then I looked deeper to see how you added that awesome touch. Very cool. Did you hit up the Utah Arts Festival? I did and I thought of you while I was there. I actually looked to see if you had a booth (Which you should have) I really think you should. You could clean up selling some of your art. You'd better do it next year.

Josh, you are so nice. I'm glad you like it. I actually used my artistic license on this by changing the pathway to lead the eye in. Plus enhancing the colors. I really think lighting makes all the difference. It's the difference between a ho hum painting and one that brings you into the story. I've checked into the Utah Arts Festival before when I was doing art professionally. It's a lot of work and expense if you don't sell much. I found that out with the Dickens Festival. There are no guarantees, you know. I wish you a ton of good luck. I didn't know you were going to be in it. If I get down there I'll find you. Not sure if I'm going this time, though. Hmmmm. I doubt I'll do it next year. But you never know. I appreciate your support so much.
