VIEWPOINT NATIONAL JURIED ART COMPETITION





This is the 3rd time I've entered Viewpoint, a national juried show held locally by the Cincinnati Art Club. 

This is the 2nd time I got in :) 


This is a big deal (70 paintings chosen from 355 entries), and I am very pleased and hope watermedia has a good showing again this year.




My painting
A Difference of Opinion
is the one the judge chose from 2 crow paintings.

It also won an Honorable Mention at the previous Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society show in the spring so I guess people like it as much as I do.

Congratulations, Rhonda. It is a wonderful painting.

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Maggie, Ann, and Christiane :) As the saying goes, "From your mouth to God's ear!" I have to take my painting in on Halloween - how appropriate for a couple of black as night crows!

Hi Rhonda,
WAY TO GO!! We're all expecting an award to cap off your selection.
Well Done!
Sincerely,
Gary.

How wonderful Rhonda...best of luck. Your crow paintings are fabulous.

RH Carpenter said...

Well, Gary, it's up to the judge; I did my part! ha ha

Thanks, Carol and Rachel. Rachel, I would love to have a sale one of these days - it's been a long time since I sold anything at all.
