Winning entry for the Axcess Benefactor Award
Yay! The gallery I show my work through sponsors a contest along with a local company interested in the arts. I entered this contest in the past and won once. Well, I entered again and my painting titled "Axcess at Summit and 222" won the award! I am very pleased that my work is being acknowledged as successful! Below is the painting. I took reference photos for this painting as I happened to be following one of the Axcess trucks home one day. And I happened to have my camera with me. Luck. :) Of the 50-60 photos I snapped (yes, while driving... o.O... but not looking through the viewfinder...) This one stood out compositionaly as the best. I altered a few things (like I removed some of the powerlines and signs) and came up with this final pic. Also chose to use a limited palette, which has been serving me well lately.
