Lovely anita. My favorite would have to be the last still life I did of 2008 (although I'm painting today) because it really represents where I want to go as an artist and I'm starting to shape my style.

Getting Ready for Striped Bass Season 18"x24" on Stretched Canvas.

Hope everyone has a great 2009!!!! Looking forward to watching people's progress.

This was a quick, easy choice for me. My brother Dan, (Danju) held a two day session for our small Prairie Artists' Workshop at their home in South Dakota. We had a very productive time of learning, painting, eating, drinking, and laughing together. I feel my best work of the year occurred there when I did this 9x12, oil on masonite panel. Won a ribbon at the Nebraska State Fair, too! What fun! Thanks for starting this thread where we can all see the Best of the Best from each other.

My brother in law got this for Christmas. I probably could have sold it. Ahh. Reason to paint another one!
Happy New Year.

This will have to do for me. I find still life so darned hard to do.

This is the one I chose for this year. It was a redo of an earlier version I did the year before and I think a huge improvement over the previous painting.

"Coffee pot and squash" 18x24in. acrylic on canvas

Wow..wow.
That is some impressive work.

This is my favorite, not sure why. Just like the way it came out I guess.

I think Lyle's Roses is my favorite from 2008 (6 x 6 oil on panel)

I feel honored to be among such creative and talented company :) From the look of things .... 2009 is going to be fantastic!

I am going to choose this one "The Collection". Acrylic on canvas 16X20
90% of my work is still-life so it was tough to decide. I chose this one in the end, because it actually turned out the same as the image I had of it in my mind before I started it. Not something that occurs that often.

Haven't visited this forum for a while but would like to include one of my favorites from 2008. Have to say this was a challenge for me at that time. Lil

This is one of my favorites...I love the way the vase turned out. It was exactly like I wanted it to be. Any comments appreciated.
