Amidst the barrage of hurricane warnings this Labor Day weekend, it was a distinct pleasure to get an email from the LightSpaceTime Online Gallery congratulating me on winning Special Recognition in their 9th Annual Open Art Competition for Black Swan. The gallery received 782 entries from 20 different countries from around the world, as well as from 34 different states and the District of Columbia, so it’s a distinct honor to be included among the artists receiving Special Recognition in the Painting & Other Media category.
I make it a habit to regularly enter art competitions for several reasons but mostly because compliments from family and friends are lovely but no real measure of how good your work is. It’s mostly from juried competitions that you can answer the question, “How am I doing?”
I was thrilled and delighted to receive a Special Recognition Award for Flame from the LightSpaceTime Online Gallery’s 9th Figurative Exhibition. I have devoted most of the last three years to portrait and figure, so awards from juried exhibitions of my efforts are particularly satisfying. Receiving the news on April !st, I was happy to know that it was no joke!
Good news for the new year came from Light Space & Time Online Gallery today. I entered their 8th Annual All Women Art Exhibition, and Diva won a Special Recognition award for outstanding art in the Painting and Other Media category. The gallery received 909 entries from 24 countries from around the world, including 37 states in the U.S., so I am honored to be including among so many talented women.
You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted since October 18, a significant date for me and my husband, since that was the day we accepted an offer for our house in Swampscott. We only had two months to clean out and pack up the home we’ve had there for almost 45 years, so painting and posting had to take a back seat for a couple of months until we closed and moved to our condo in Florida. Recovering from the stress and labor involved in such a big move has been a challenge, but I’m just about ready to resume my life and get back to painting again. Look for a painting of my son and his son soon, as well as several black & white studies…
How delightful to end a relaxing holiday weekend with the news that Reach won a Special Merit Award in the Painting and Other Media category of the LightSpaceTime Online Gallery Open Art Exhibition for September 2018! The gallery received 702 entries from 31 different countries from around the world, as well as from 39 different states, and I am honored to be included with 64 other artists in this category.
