It was interesting to see the mediums that made the top awards - and your waterfall is my favorite of yours. I'm so glad you entered it.

Congratulations, Phil! The painting is amazing! I love it! Voted for you for best of WC even over the chrome one, that waterfall took my breath away.

Just voted. The voting is almost evenly divided among the three, and all I can do now is to keep my fingers crossed for Phil's waterfall. His is definitely the most exciting of the three.

Phil, congrats on being included!

Congratulations Phil - that is a beautiful painting.

Kathryn, the link you so kindly supplied took me to a page that says I'm viewing as a "guest", and won't allow me to vote. Is there another link or what forum is it located in?

Peggy, go to "Content Areas"; "Discussion" - there are threads at the very top.

I got a similar message to Peggy's, and no images. I noticed that I was required to sign in again and then was able to vote.

Congratulations Phil! I hope you win the grand prize!
The waterfall is so beautiful. I remember when you first posted it I thought to myself "wow, he makes the water look so wet!" Not an easy feat with pastels!!

I remember this painting from when you posted it on here Phil. It took my breath away! I voted for it in the categories and I've just voted for it again (although it is a close call as the other 2 are also absolutely brilliant). At the mo you're in the lead but it's VERY close!!

Thanks for sending me in the right direction Kat. I appreciate knowing you will always come up with the right answer to my questions.

I just voted, and at this point Phil has pulled ahead with 39% of the votes. :clap:

Phil, congratulations! It's a beautiful painting, it has so much atmosphere you can imagine you are right there feeling the spray from the water. You deserve to win and you certainly have my vote.

Best wishes,
Julie.
