I’ve been holding off on this post for a few weeks…waiting for a little ol’ article to make its appearance in a little ol’ local paper. It’s a great article, all about the Mosman Park Art Awards (yes that again!) and all about the winners of each section…problem is…they forgot one section…and one winner.
This is the line they forgot…
“And the winner of the ‘People’s Choice Art Award’ is….”
Yes! ‘Look Before You Leap’ got ‘the people choice’ award.
I love the fact that the ‘people’, the you and me’s of Perth, liked my painting. The judges judge. They choose with a criteria in mind. Whether the painting suits the collection, whether it’s different enough from the last few years etc, etc, etc. Whether it’s too big…!
The ‘people’ choose because they LIKE it. Simple as that. LIKE.
So, I didn’t get my name mentioned in the paper. So what? Out of a couple of hundred paintings…mine was liked number one.
Gotta be happy with that! A great bit of info for an artist’s blurb.
The next two art award entries are painted, photographed and all the paperwork is completed. Onward and upward (hopefully).
Now I concentrate on getting a pile of work ready for an expo I have applied for in October.
Just letting you know.
