I got another Blue Ribbon, although a virtual it is a blue ribbon and the painting competed internationally!
It's an online gallery that has monthly exhibitions and this one was an open theme. There were 781 international entrants, 10 took 1-10th place and the next 100 were Special Merit awards, of which I was one of those with this little gem, "Apples and Lemons."
I've been so busy painting lately. My studio mate, Linda and I have both taken up the Challenge yet again to do a painting a day, in two challenges. That would be scary except we are using the same painting for each, which is still 30 paintings. So far it hasn't been too much of a challenge. Youcan pre-paint to an extent and that is what we have done. I'm also posting on multiple Facebook groups, my art page, my page, and Daily Paintworks where they can be purchased. You know it's not as if I don't have anything to do but it does help with the practice. There are also tons of shows we are entering and trying to figure out what we need to enter and where, which way. Oh it does get confusing because you don't want to enter one that may lap over to another show. So we have to have a lot done in order to make it work. Plus all the framing and getting it all ready to hang. Also, in the works are plans to try and have a two or three person show for us and that takes time to plan also.
Be sure to check out sidebar here on my blog for a link to my Daily Paintworks page to see the 30 in 30 challenge going on.
