"Tryin' To Make a Living" by Pat Koscienski

"Tryin' To Make A Living"
8" x 10"
Acrylic

This painting was done for Karin Jurick's DSFDF (Different Strokes From Different Folks) week 52-54 challenge "Airport Travelers". And, believe me...it was a "challenge". It's not 100% without error, however, I'm glad to have completed it and pleased that I was able to take on yet another subject that I would not have chosen on my own. As with each new challenge in life, learning and growth takes place. And, now I can (virtually) fly off to Halifax, Nova Scotia and paint a landscape there for my Virtual Paintout challenge.

I think this is magnificent - you can physically feel the light. Great job, Pat!

Pat Koscienski said...

Thanks, Claire. I'm glad you like it. There was a lot of contrast between the light and the dark. That really helped the light pop.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful Pat! I need to finish mine. I hope it is a quarter as successful as yours!

You did this beautifully, Pat. I love the floor colors but my absolute favorite is the glasses on the bottom man. Wonderful job!

Pat Koscienski said...

Sheila, thank you. I saw your works and know it will be better than a quarter. Can't wait to see yours.

Pat Koscienski said...

Autumn, now you have me looking to see how many included the glasses. LOL

You did a great job on this, Pat. I especially like the turquoise.

Carol, I totally related to your description of this challenge on your blog. You made me howl! I am still working on straightening out the perspective...I should repost my corrrected and final draft.
