I think it would be great if we could get a list of just who won a place in the Pastel100 contest and is showing in the Pastel Journal this month. I know so many people by a user name only here, it would take a lot of leg work to find out via names and paintings. How about it??? and...congratulations. Derek

Thank you for pointing that out, Derek. I was thinking the same thing. I was fortunate enough to be chosen for an honorable mention in this year's Top 100. When I'm not being a San Diego "water girl", my name is Karen Howard and I usually post still life paintings. Dianna Ponting won an honorable mention as well, but everyone knows Dianna. That's an easy one....
The Top 100 is my favorite issue. I find it stokes the creative fires and motivates me. I always ask myslef, "How do these artists come up with new ideas for their paintings"?

Karen: Love your juicy orange slices...wonderful!!
Diana's silky swirl is fantastic.
Congratulations you guys.
Derek :thumbsup:

I received an Honorable Mention in the Abstract/Non-Objective and was thrilled as it was the first time I ever entered a contest like this (and now probably not the last).

I would just like to say "thank you" to all the very positive pastel artists on Wet Canvas. I've learned a lot in this group and everyone is so supportive and helpful to other artists.

Just picked up a copy of the PJ, and congratulations to all the WC winners!

Karen Howard, Deb Stewart, Dianna Ponting and also Kari Tirrell!

Please let us know if you are a winner as we just don't know everyone's real name!

Great paintings, one and all!

Congrats to all of you. I just subscribed so I don't know if I have a copy coming in the mail yet or not. Think I'll run to Barnes and Noble today and pick one up. Two is better than none and I really want to see all our winners!
