Hey Friends, Well, I finally made up my mind. I added the blue stripes to the tablecloth!
I think it added the missing something. Scroll down, peek at the last image of this, and tell me what you think. It is not varnished yet so I COULD change it.
I've been real busy last couple days, doing miniatures for the Christmas show on Dec. 5th. It's called the "Gift of Art"! Get it? This year it will take place at the Jefferson Center, downtown area of Roanoke, Va. I will be showing small paintings and miniatures. Stuff people can afford to give as gifts.
BTW-I got an email tonight from the LRA telling me I won an award in the annual SHOWCASE of ART! No, they didn't tell me which award. I should find out Sunday. The awards ceremony is 2-4 Sunday, Sept. 27th at the Jefferson Center. Hope you can be there.
Happy Trails.

The completed painting looks GORGEOUS (and looking back to the work in progress, the unfinished painting is rather lovely too). I think the blue stripes were the perfect addition. You did such a great job with the crinkles in the tablecloth- it looks so soft and breezy. I really admire your talent.

And a big CONGRATS on the award! You deserve it!

Wow, nicely done! I envy anyone with the talent to paint like you do. I love how the final painting came out.

The plain tabletop was nice--the striped tablecloth makes the painting. Great work.
