FineArtViews Painting Competition Award
I got a wonderful surprise today when I got home from a long day in both Courtenay and Campbell River with Bob running errands. I thought I would quickly check my email and received the message that my painting "Lisa" was selected as one of the FAV15% in the September FineArtViews Painting competition. This is means I might get featured in the informed collector section sometime in the coming months. I am trying to embed the award badge in this blog but I got a message that the gadget is broken right now. Hope they get that fixed soon. In any case, I feel very grateful to the jury and feel that I am finally making a bit of progress in getting more attention for my work. Artists ride the fence of ego vs. selflessness, trying to offer the world part of their gift and at the same time wanting some of the spotlight as a result. I am no different. I would like to be a well known, well regarded artist. I'm human! I also seriously hope that my small efforts bring a bit of light into our world...I am aware that in the long run none of this matters but while we're here it is nice to contribute in a positive way and be recognized.
