Salon entries in, now back to commissions...

I submitted these paintings into the 2010 Salon International today -two days before the deadline! It might be wiser not to share that, in case none are accepted, but we're friends, right? I guess I count on you to help me celebrate if either is accepted and encourage me if not. I'm pretty proud of these paintings, whatever happens.

Gentleman Traveler, 14x11 oil


Sisters In The Sand, 16x20 oil
Tonight (Wednesday, January 13, 6 p.m. Central time) I'll be continuing work during my online broadcast on the pastel portrait of Carrie Lu.
I hope you'll come by and chat with me and my fun group of artists and friends while I paint.

Susan...I think these are great, but did you not submit "Corner Chair?" Whatever you submitted, I wish you all the good luck in the world. You do a terrific job on whatever you choose to do.

Love all three!!

Pattie Wall said...

All is well, we won't say a word! Ha! These three are all outstanding. I have my fingers crossed! Congrats ahead of time.

Susan Carlin said...

Thanks, Lokelani. I lost heart on Corner Chair and thought it would take more time than what I had left before the deadline to figure out what to do and then do it. So I worked on Gentleman instead. I'll try to get back to Corner Chair sometime in the next month and see what I can figure out.

Thanks, Hissnhowl!

Thanks, Pattie! I really appreciate your confidence in me, but the Salon sets a very high bar. If none are accepted this year, then perhaps the next. I certainly won't give up!

Regardless of acceptance I think it's agreed you've already done an amazing job on all three paintings and we may not be judges but you've passed the bar with your fans/friends time and time again. Fingers crossed for entry too though....

Good luck to you, Susan! I know you'll get in the show. I'm partial to Little Loves, but they're all wonderful.

Oh, Susan....My favorite is Gentleman Traveler. What a strong portrait. I'm sure you will get in. When that happens all of your blogland friends will congratulate you in a big way.

I can't imagine that these will not be accepted. They are brilliant! Best of luck. I promised myself to start painting portrait studies this year, thank you for sharing.
