Pictures for Paintings

Well, I signed up to enter a painting in this year's art show. But, I don't have a painting to enter. I believe the artwork is due sometime next week, so I figured I'd get started on it. (Thanks, Mom, for reminding me.) Last night I dug through all my pictures trying to find something to inspire me. I've narrowed it down to the following. I have a pretty good idea as to which one I'm going to do (I really just felt like posting something), but if any of you have an opinion feel free to give it.
This is going to be a 8 X 10 pastel. Also understand that artistic license will be taken with these photos - for example the roof top painting would have pinker clouds and fewer antenna rods.

I like the roof tops (1st one) and I've always like the one of the single window.

I like the window as well. Simple, yet powerful.

gorgeous!! what a fun class, too. I wish I had the ability to translate what I see into visual art...but the best I can do is a stick figure..haha.

I love the bagpiper!

I like the street scene with the RED doors, next the window. Cool pic.s did you take some of them?

Thanks for your opinions guys! Ha ha, as it is I went with the one that none of you voted for - the Hawaii life guard house. I thought I could make the trees look pretty cool in a pastel. I'm having second thoughts about it now, but I think the over-all picture has potential. And I will paint the others as well...someday :)

I knew better than to give my opinion. For years, Jesse would ask me, "Which do you like better?" Then she would hold up two things. I would pick one. She would go with the other. She said it just helped her to make up her mind.
