I thought I had a thread about just this painting in particular, but I guess I dreamed it. The link below does feature the painting, but is more about a local art show than this painting in particular.

It was really tough to choose one out of the 45+ I had painted last year but I decided to go with my jackrabbit.
02-01-2010, 09:08 PM
I would have to say that this was my favorite of last year.
It was a breakthrough from my constant "realistic" style paintings.
Everything re the method of composition was something that I have learned here.
So if you like it, I thank-you, as you helped me paint it!:lol:
Moonlight & Marigolds
Acrylic on canvas
16" X 20"

This one may not be my best of the year, but it is one of my favorites.....

This one is probably my favorite for the year. I had a lot of fun with it. Probably my best landscape/wildlife piece to date.
"Algonquin Dreamer" 18" x 28"
It took awhile to decide, but I finally chose Best Friends.
I love the story it tells.
Oh and if anyone remenbers the circumstances of this commission, they got back together!! Happy Ending for All!

Woman In The Alley 12x16 Acrylic on birch panel.
It was an easy choice if for no other reason I have not had a lot of time to paint this last year. I have this thing for people interacting with doors, widows and passage ways. I have some more in the works along this same theme.

I like painting portraits and this is definitely my favorite portrait I painted in 2009. I like a lot of things about it, plus it's based on a photo I took that I really liked (included in the thread) of my best friend. I do a lot of straight-on portraits so this was different than my normal style.
02-13-2010, 10:38 PM
The *only* painting of mine in 2009 ... :o ....
Autumn American Falls
8"x10" on edge stapled canvas
Thanks for looking :heart:

Abstract w/Self Portrait. Not my best for 2009. 16 x 20 acrylic on canvas panel.
03-02-2010, 05:48 AM
Due to one distraction and another I have submitted very little work during 2009 and this was one of the early ones. Much to my surprise it received some remarkably kind comments and I've become quite fond of it as a result.
03-08-2010, 11:57 PM
Awesome works completed here in WC during this past year!!
This is one of my favorites.
I named Cypress Serenity after this post was started.
03-11-2010, 09:09 AM
This one was sort of a challenge to me but like the way it turned out. From the November challenge. Lil
03-15-2010, 09:08 PM
So hard to decide on just ONE ... but I chose "October Feast for a Monarch," a painting of Tropical Milkweed as my favorite because I was pretty happy with it and it was my first ever 24"x30" painting. It's Chroma Atelier Interactive Acrylics. This is the link: http://wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=590842

This was a significant event in my art life of 2009. This is a young family of a well-known musician/composer here in Utah, Paul Cardall. He was born with a severe congenital heart defect and needed a heart transplant to survive. This was painted while he was waiting for a heart. He is happily, gratefully recovering from his miraculous transplant surgery at this time. :)
