Fine Art Online Competition Finalist

One of my watercolours - "Among Friends" (14"x 21") - was just selected as a September finalist  in the Fine Art Views Painting Competition. The judge was Keiko Tanabe, an extremely talented watercolorist, so it was quite an honor to have this piece chosen. If you are a painter and you don't know of this competition, you should definitely check it out, it is attracting a wide range of painters from those just starting out to some of the finest artists painting today. Reasonable entry fee and some cash prizes, as well of course as the opportunity for exposure. They post all the entries online each month, so there is also the chance to check out lots of interesting art as the entries filter in.

By the way, I dropped the ball and missed my domain name renewal date 2 days ago, so my website and email are out of commission until God knows when (very hard to get a clear answer on that). I am working on keeping the wheels moving - check back here if you would like to know when it is up and running again.


  1. This painting is spectacular -- the reflected light in the shadowed area on the right is almost other-worldly!
    I would love to be advised when your Painting a Day blog fires up but, as you mentioned, your email isn't working right now -- so I'll just watch for news here.
    At your suggestion, I checked out the Fine Art Views Painting competition -- a bit daunting, but I did enjoy looking at the many excellent entries, and reading the rules (especially No. 31)
