"COLORADO" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF SCENES IN COLORADO © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

48" x 18" x 1.75" mixed media on cradled panel
$1,400
available at Creations Art and Gifts in Louisville, Colorado
 
If this painting looks familiar, well, that is because it is merely a tweaked (again) version of the previously known and tweaked "Mt. Evans Layers"...yes...it IS true that if a painting hangs around very long it will be tweaked most likely! So, as it was hanging in my home studio awaiting the sale of  another large painting I kept looking at it...and thus the tweaking...so...here is the original (well, once tweaked version) You can see there is not MUCH difference, except for the elephant in the room...the darker version of the mountain...it just didn't do it for me...so, I greyed it down a bit...tweaked it a bit and NOW it's finished version.  I feel it works better with the whole piece...  I also added a bit here and there...some highlights on the rocks...and a small stand of aspen in the top right...
 
 
 

 
SO, it is on it's way to Creations Art and Gifts in Louisville to live for a bit.  WHEW...maybe I can stop tweaking this one for awhile! HA!  Now it's back to work on various Christmas gifts (of which I will show you when I'm finished), and commissions!  HAPPY CREATING!!

Hah! I never go back and tweak. 'Course, all my stuff is out of sight once I finish with them and they are in watercolor, which makes it more difficult to tweak. Anyway, it is still beautiful though I really liked the darker mountain.

Thank you for your thoughts Crimson Leaves. I used to paint in watercolor and my favorite thing was to see just how I could edit my paintings! Ha. I respect your thoughts on "Colorado". I spent some good time considering this painting...for me, it needed to be a little less in my face, so the rest of the piece could live there too. :)
