Fine Art Views Painting Competition - Fav 15%

I have been looking at this online compeition, Fine Art Views Painting Competition, for some time, but the quality of the entries always made me hesitant about entering  a painting myself. I made the commitment last month and entered a painting for the December 2009 competition, and found out today that I had been selected for the Juror's Favorite 15% of the entries. It didn't place in any of the prize categories but I am very happy with being in the Juror's top 15%! There were almost 700 entries for December, and the Juror, artist Nancy Guzik, certainly had her hands full choosing from all the great art submitted.

The painting I entered was "Cows in the Meadow" that I painted from a photo I took down near Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park.

Good for you! Pleased for you.
Your work is very good. Of course, I'm not an art critic, but I have been around long enough and to so many art museums, and painting lessons myself, I can tell you have a natural eye for color and your paintings are always interesting. Nothing boring in any of your work.
So congrats.
