And the Crowd Goes Wild!

Well it’s been about 10 days since voting closed on the USA Pro Challenge Poster Contest, and we’re still waiting for the winner to be announced. I thought I’d share one of the other paintings I submitted for the contest while we wait. This one didn’t make it to finalist status in the contest, but I enjoyed painting it just as much as the one that did.

It’s called “And the Crowd Goes Wild!”, and is 24″x36″. It’s also painted in oil on a deep profile canvas.

I love the colors in this one – I’ve really only started experimenting with bright colors like this in the last year. Previously my color palettes have been more subdued and mellow. But generally speaking, I’m a happy, positive person…so shouldn’t I paint paintings that express that?
