and the winner is...

CLCDARK! Isn't it funny how these things work. Most people in the draw were names I knew, then there was this last minute entry with no blog to be nosy about, yet I had a feeling this was going to be the winner. Clcdark, please email me (see profile page) with your address and I'll get the painting prints on panel off to you ASAP. I had #2 son, Adam, draw the winning name when he got home from school. He wears some of these:

Yes, here in the land of teenage boys we have shoes. And if they don't put them away neatly they (the boys and the shoes) end up here:

But, to finish on a slightly more elevated note, here is Nadine's House, completed, plus, for Tara, a detail to show you how the underpainting makes its presence felt.

I see Nadine gets a 'signature' birdie.
I've just been looking, guiltily, at Epoch and I promise to do it soon.(Arggh!Deadlines!)

Jim's got footwear like those - but I wouldn't get as close as that to photograph them... unless I had a cold :-)

Nadine's House is fabulous, and thanks for the highlighter portion that shows your skills so briliantly. Damn, you are good. You should be worth millions. I'll see who I can talk to about that.

I love your painting! It reminds me of a B & B here in Windsor, although yours is much nicer. Love all the shoes lined up too!

I like the shoe print. Those could be the shoes of my sons.

LOTSA underpainting shows! yay!(I love that look). Thanks for the detail.

How do you get your teenaged boys to line their shoes up? I am constantly griping over the tangled pile by the front door...

Andrea, congratulations to the dark horse winner!

And thanks for posting the detail of your painting. Yes, I can see how your underpainting enriches it--beautiful!

The boys' shoes are fun. Where did you find that street sign? Perfect.

The house is wonderful and your underpainting technique so interesting! Thanks Andrea, for showing us how your art works. I love this hous, and the little fire hydrant (don't know the wordk in English) in front is like the point on the i:)
