Please do not comment on other people's work in this thread, use the link!
When you upload, please state size and support used (canvas, paper etc) and perhaps a comment on why you chose this particular work.
This thread will remain open until the end of March when it will be closed and moved to the Hall of Fame for viewing.

I'll go first! This is my '62 Vette painting. I chose this for a couple of reasons - I am very new to painting and this was by far the best I have posted, and also this was my very first attempt at painting a car. Had lots of fun with it!
11x14 on Aquaboard

This is my favorite painting for the year. It was by far my most difficult and consequently, my most satisfying. This painting is called "Salama" which is Swahili for peace and security.
11"x 14" acrylic on board.
Oh goodness, it's tough to be the one to post after Ian...
Well, here goes. My best achievement for 2010 was "Hero Sandwich". It's the one that I persisted with, until I felt that I couldn't improve upon it. I was pleased with the composition and glad in the end that I took some risks.
The wip posting is here:http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=613181.
I don't think I ever did post the fully finished piece, so here it is. 30x24 on canvas.

Happy New Year!
I chose this for its impact but I still don't have a suitable title. It's 16x20 on canvas panel.
Here's the original thread. It contains a link to the wip thread. :http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=613401
Coralie thinks it's tough following Ian, well try following Ian and Coralie. Great work everyone!

After looking at all my mule pics and equines of 2010, I think this is one of my best.......

Peony, 16"x16" on canvas. Original thread. (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=621881)
I chose this painting because it presented so many problems and frustrations for me that I was really glad when I'd finished!:lol:
I chose this one because it was one of my favourites of this year.

I think this is the one I'm happiest with of all my painings (probably appropriate with some of the headaches they've caused me!) this year.
"Peer into Space"

Out of the few paintings I managed to paint last year I liked this one the most.

I really enjoyed doing this cat on the old chair..The chair was what attracted me to paint it.16x20 on canvas

Of the limited amount of work that I have submitted to the forum in 2010 this one proved to be the most interesting because it contained a number of diverse elements. The original WIP may be accessed here:
My contribution is Day's End. It was hard to pick, but I think it is my favorite for 2010.

I chose this one because it was the last one in a series of women paintings I did last year- Aung San Suu Kyi from Burma- she was released last year from house arrest which had lasted nearly 20 years.

I didn't do very much in acrylics last year. My best was for the April Different Strokes (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=615934&highlight=Strokes) project.

I chose this one because I love the brightness and boldness of the color and the freedom here. This painting happened very quickly, maybe 1.5 hrs.
This one is 24x30" acrylic/canvas. You can comment on this link:

One of my favorites of last years efforts.
