I've been working on a painting for a group show called Winter Magic. Each painting in the show will be 16" x 16" x 1.5", unframed, with sides painted black. (The gallery wants to present an interesting, cohesive display.) I have done two so far as I wasn't satisfied with the first and wanted to try something different. One is a winterscape with a snowy owl resting on a post, painted in oil. The other is a stylized and abstracted composition, painted in acrylic in a layered effect, using block printing and lots of patterns, usually my favourite style of working. They are decidedly different from each other! Before posting on Facebook and showing the gallery, I would love to get your input. My questions are: "Which do you like better?" and "Which do you think the general art-buying public (in a mountain resort town) would be more likely to buy? Why?"
