View Full Version : Two awards for my cityscapes!
06-21-2017, 03:18 PM
In the last few months, I've received two awards for my cityscapes!
The first was a Best in Show at the district level from the League for Innovation art competition for my painting, "First and Virginia" (8x10, oil on canvas panel):
...and, I also was awarded First Place by the SCC Invitational competition for "Now You See It," (18x24, oil on canvas):
These were the first competitions I've entered, so I'm incredibly honored and excited by these awards!

contumacious and Dave, many thanks!
Dave, I hope it was OK to repost them in this thread! By the time I wondered about that the thread was already posted. Maybe Jon or Wendy will weigh in...
How cool! Congratulations!

the Virginia Inn after a day on the streets.

Very nice work and congrats! The first is by far my favourite. Beautiful!

I like the first one in particular. Good tonal values and greys. But there seems to be a little bit of 'sinking in' of the oil paint. Toning your canvas with a wash of oil paint helps to keep the paint fresh.
Annie: way to go.
You deserve it. Great job.

s jackson and Myse, many thanks for the kind words!
Myse, there was a competition and the instructor I had at the time encouraged me to enter it. I almost didn't and was very surprised to find I had won.
