I went in and softened the shadow shapes and lightened them a bit, then added a bit more to the crows. Done. And ready to enter the WACC Juried Show and hope it gets in. I've decided to go ahead and just enter this one since Caw Girl #1 didn't work out.
The paintings you enter (you can enter 2) have to be matted and framed because they are judged in person. So you have them ready to hang, take them to the gallery, drop them off and then wait for the verdict. If you enter 2, you still have to return to pick up the one that didn't get in. (It would be much easier for everyone if they judged based on cd or online entries showing the paintings.)
So...my question is:
When you can enter 2 or 3 paintings but only 1 is juried in, is it better to enter two similar style paintings or just enter your strongest painting? What do you artists with more experience than I in entering shows do?
This one is at the framers now and will be ready for the March 26th drop-off date.
