We artists who enter juried and non-juried shows have to deal with some rejections and keep on going. Art, after all, is a subjective thing. One juror may love your work, and another doesn't select it. It is all part of the game. So, this year, after several "denials" into juried shows I entered, the same paintings won awards in another show!
I am honored to share with you that my paintings "Flick of the Tail" and "The Pond" both won awards in the Sierra Pastel Society Spring Membership Show this month! I was entered in the Signature Category and both one an Award of Excellence ribbon and award money.
This was a wonderful and beautiful show, all beautiful paintings and strong competition! We have some very talented artists in the Sierra Pastel Society!
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
