Natural Arch

”NATRUAL ARCH” by Kim VanDerHoek.

8 X 10 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
A $13.00 print of this painting is available in my Etsy shop.

I realized today that after winning a second place award from the Orange Art Association for this painting that I never posted a close up of it.

As a painter there are certain paintings that you remember as milestones in your artistic development. This is one of mine. The day I set out to paint this I was questioning the progression of my style. I felt I had done pretty well that day and was rewarded with an immediate sale to the first person that viewed it. What a wonderful boost to my confidence!

Do you like it? Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear your comments!

Hi Kim... it's been awhile so thought I'd stop by to see what you've been up to... and I see you've been quite busy. Upon looking back, this painting caught my eye, and then I saw that it had no comments, so I thought it was the perfect place to post. Not that I don't love all of your paintings, and I love the littel ACEO, but I just thought this one needed the attention it deserves! :)

Hope your holidays were merry and lets hope we all have a joy filled and prosperous 2008.
