Primary Colors Art Exhibition

I have often said that I love color, so the Primary Colors Arts Competition on www.lightspacetime.art seemed made for me, where at least one or more of the primary colors (red, blue and/or yellow) stood out as a primary artistic element in the artwork submitted. Now I am delighted to have won a Special Merit Award for Fantasy and Special Recognition for Steeplechase. There were 741 entries in the competition from 24 different countries around the world and 35 different states and D.C., so it’s an honor to be included among the award winners.

Fantasy

 

I painted Fantasy using old black and white movie posters from the 1930’s & 40’s of Loretta Young as my reference for the woman. I called the painting Fantasy, hoping it was ambiguous enough that some would think she is his fantasy and others think he is hers.

Steeplechase

 

I painted Steeplechase as a gift for my husband, who has great memories of his father taking him to George C. Tilyou’s Steeplechase Park in Coney Island to ride the mechanical ponies in a horserace, one of the highlights of his childhood.

 

The exhibition runs online through the month of July on http://www.lightspacetime.art.

Good Company

Rising Again

 

The LightSpaceTime Online Gallery ran a Vacation Special Art Competition (no theme) this June, asking artists to submit five images of their best abstract or representational art to be considered for exhibition.  The gallery received 1558 entries from 39 different countries around the world, 43 states and the District of Columbia. There were only five overall winners, drawn from Painting and Other Media, 3 Dimensional Art and Photography and Digital Media, so I was especially honored to find that Rising Again has won a Special Merit Award in Painting and Other Media. Take a look at www.lightspacetime.art to see the 84 artists in this category with me, since I can only show you a small sample here. 

 

Figurative 2018 Art Exhibition

 

Looking for Love

I continue to enter juried art exhibitions, whenever I think my paintings are a good fit for a particular competition, since there’s  no better way to be taken seriously as an artist than by getting a third party endorsement of your work. Family and friends may offer praise out of love, but the judgment of someone who doesn’t know you and does know art carries a lot more weight.

Since figurative is where I live, this one was a no brainer. I entered five paintings in the Figurative 2018 Art Exhibition, and, of those, Looking for Love was awarded Special Merit and Rising received Special Recognition and can be viewed on the Light Space & Time Gallery website. If you have the interest and/or patience to view the YouTube video of the Special Merit winners, you can see what good company I’m in.

New Year News

Madeleine at 15

 

Madeleine at 15 won a Special Merit Award, and Haven’t I Seen You Here Before? won Special Recognition!! I entered two new competitions sponsored by the Light Space & Time Online Gallery in December and just received the results for the All Women Art Exhibition, particularly timely when feminism is the word of the year and women are being celebrated for our accomplishments. These two paintings were chosen for mention from among 1005 entries submitted from around the world. There is a slide show of this exhibition on their YouTube channel, as well as all of the gallery’s past shows.

Haven’t I Seen You Here Before?

Who Knew?

Aquarium

 

It’s been a busy month, so I just got to look through my website email to find and print my award certificate for Modern Family in the Seascapes Art Exhibition on lightspacetime.art. Imagine my surprise when I found two certificates, the second one for Aquarium! And Aquarium received a Special Merit Award! This painting was my first effort at jellyfish, the first time I painted on a gessoboard and the subject of the very first post I published on this website on July 13, 2013, called “Inspiration.”
