Sunset On the Wabash



Oil
30'x40"

This is the final painting from the Wabash River series. Interesting to work in larger formats. This was a 30"x40" canvas and as usual, the painting takes on a life of its own in the painting process. I went with brighter colors that the previous two works. The feedback I got in my studio was positive, so I decided to enter it as one of my two entries in the Hoosier Salon. Whoops...wrong choice. It was rejected. Bummer, but that is the way juried shows go...completely subjective. Oh well, I'll try again next year. I had been pretty lucky anyway, winning awards in the last three shows.
