View Full Version : Which one do I pick?

I need to get one more painting ready for a juried show in just over one week. I need to decide which of these three I should finish, frame and submit. Any help would be appreciated.

and 3rd picture. (is there a way of doing this all at once?)

I like the shoes best. The painting has a landscape feeling to it, which I think is cool.
I like the telephone pic ... that light has such a realistic feel.

I like the telephone too.
To put more than one image in a post, you open your post first, then copy and paste your uploaded images into the post one by one.

I don't know where you're going with it, but I'd definitely pick the telephone!
Interesting subject, more unique
Great use of negative space
Has an abstract style although it's a realistic subject

Telephone for me, too.
To upload pics into one post, use the uploader button up top one after the other without submitting in-between.

Another vote for the phone... !!! :D
PS... congrats on the show... knock em' dead kiddo!

I like all three but I'd have to say the shoes are my favorite. They just are so wonderfully painted.
Best of luck in the show!

I don't know why - but I found I stopped and looked at that pic the longest - it seemed (for me anyway) to have the strongest impact. Possibly the nice strong tones - but I'm no expert.
Good luck in the show.

I like the telephone as well.
In particular the way the light on the side of the (cloth?) gives the impression that the phone is melting.

The phone is definitely the stronger painting of the three, more drama going on. For my personal tastes though, I love the shoes and hope you will finish it and post the results. All three are worthy paintings.

Thank you Impete, Soap, JohnnyRed, Meisie, Claude, cj, Barb, blissfullyunaware, SweetbabyJ, Carly, Kyle, E-j, sundiver. I'm going to go with the phone. I had originally painted the shoes for this show, then did the phone then the hall then got totally confused. Now I just hope the juror likes the phone.

I just wanted to let everyone who helped me pick out my painting that both paintings I submitted, the telephone & the kitchen sink (from another thread) were accepted into the juried show and the telephone won Honourable Mention. Thanks again, I appreciate the help.
