Getting Ready for Juried Art Show - Help Appreciated

There is an upcoming show that I want to participate in that is for pastel work, and I can submit up to 3 pieces. Two pieces that I want to submit are:

1) the classical guitar
2) the one with the coffee stuff

For the third, I'm not sure which one I want to enter. I'm thinking either the one with the pineapple or the one with the cup and glasses. There is also another piece I'm considering which is a portrait, but I can't include more than 5 images here. However, I am thinking to submit only still life - doesn't quite fit in with the other two pieces I don't think. The portrait is right here: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...php?p=21721502

I want to know what other people's thoughts are. I appreciate any suggestions, critique, help, etc.

Like them all! The one with the pineapple has a very different look (though I see the same germinal style). So if you want them similar, go for the cups, but if you deliberately want range, go for the pineapple. And portrait looks good if you want that spread of subjects and style.

I too am drawn to the cups. Honestly, they are all fantastic. You have to keep us posted. You will get in for sure, and there may be a ribbon or two to follow.

I would choose either the cup with glasses.... or the portrait, which would show your range of painting. They are all beautiful and I love the style. Keep us posted, please!!

Mmm, these are all such wonderful, lively pieces! My only suggestion is that you get the pieces you choose submitted. And good luck!

Re: Getting Ready for Juried Art Show - Help Appreciated

Thanks everyone - looks like I'll be deciding between the portrait and the cups I might go with the portrait since it is a portrait of one of my closest friends. I'm currently working on a full figure project with her at the moment as well. Wasn't sure whether to stick with a similar theme such as still life for all my paintings. Thanks all!

I vote for the portrait.
They are all vivid and unique, but somehow this one has something special.
