Today while waiting for a clear gesso application to dry on a hardboard surface being prepared for a winter painting, I started to play around painting a Red Candle still life (oil pastel 7×5) and have a question for you.
I’m not entirely sure that I like the painting well enough to send it out as a Christmas card, I’ll probably end up with about 10 (winter landscape) paintings to choose from, but I’m giving serious consideration to this painting – a nice surprise for a spur-of-the-moment painting.
I’m torn between which version of the painting, Red Candle, I like best and wanted your opinion. I took three cropped photographs of the painting – if you wouldn’t mind telling me which one you think would make the better 7×5 holiday card. I would really appreciate it. I’m getting close to choosing one of these three versions, but I’d like to hear your thoughts, even if you think I shouldn’t consider any version of this still life and stick to using one of my winter landscapes – you won’t hurt my feelings.
Thank you in advance ~ you can click on the image to see a larger version of it.
