A NEW Challenge
My wonderful son-in-law asked me to do him a painting or two for Christmas. This was a thrilling request. The highest of honors...and I'm rarin to go! I do NOT paint things from other people's photos unless I have permission if I am going to sell my work. The ONLY exception is if my family has a request and it will not be sold. Damon had some photos he liked of his beloved Nebraska football stadium and players. I don't know much about football stadiums...so I gladly accepted these. We chose a couple from some he had saved, and these are the chosen ones. So...whew...this is the challenge before me! I've started the sketch of the football field; the Nebraska stadium on a 18x24" stretched canvas. I always cringe a bit when there is linear perspective (not my best thing), but I am also excited to try to do something different for me, and of course thrilled to do something that my son-in-law actually requested of me! I'll be showin it at different stages...here I go!!
I wanted to sneak in the final version of "Aspen Light" (the name is thanks to a fairly new follower; Karen Hargett) I added a very few highlights here and there, but basically it is the same. Thanks to all of you who gave me ideas for names. I'm a keepin them all for future paintings if that is ok!!
Don't know if I'll be teaching tomorrow or not, so I'll either paint some or teach some...Either way for me, I hope you all have happy days of painting!!
