The finished painting framed and ready for the auction. It is a 11"x22" image size, Gouache Watercolor. The auction was very slow and I was a little dissapointed in the results for all the artists. Sales were OK for the silent auction miniatures but prices were way down. First time in years I did not have a sellout of those paintings. This economy is scarey.
My gallery pardner also participated as did gallery artist, Dan Andrews. I will be posting more pictures on the gallery blog. Silversage Gallery.

A beautiful painting Gary. Hang in there, I'm sure it will pick up over the next year or two - your paintings are so appealing!!!

Très jolie peinture Gary. Il ne faut pas se décourager... La crise malheureusement est là. Il faut être optimiste et ce n'est pas elle qui nous empêchera de peindre. Le jour ou tout redeviendra meilleur nous aurons le stock nécessaire...
Amitiés.

Such a beautiful, majestic scene. A great job painting, Gary. Hope the sales improve.

You are good - in one hour I'd have, let me think, oh yes - NOTHING! You are right about the economy - we are getting fewer sponsorships for ViewPoint this year because of the economic downturn. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
