Pleased to say that today , June 1st, I was notified that my painting "Gully", has again been selected for a different competition. This time it was juried into the Light/Space /Time 8th Annual "Landscapes " competition, and won a "Special Merit Award".
In the notification it stated....
The exhibition has been divided into two media categories. Painting & Other Media and Photography & Digital. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from the media categories.
The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.
Special Merit Award Category – "These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category. Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tiers."
The gallery received 577 entries from 26 different countries from around the world, as well as from 29 different states.
Each competition that "Gully " has been entered in, have different high profile judges, so it really feels like an honour to be fortunate in being selected, in International Competitions.
Need to finish other pieces so I can be ready for more competitions. :)
Back to the easel....... :)
