BLUECANVAS Art Contest and New Art
With A Flourish
The folks over at BLUECANVAS Magazine are having an art contest with the winners to be published in the next issue of their magazine, that being issue five. The deadline for submitting art for the contest is April 16, 2010 and there will be 4 to 6 winners chosen. The theme of this contest, BLUECANVAS Magazine's second such contest, is solace and artists are asked for their interpretation on this theme. From the contest web site, There is no right or wrong interpretation, we just want to see what you come up with.
There is no fee to enter the contest. Instead the magazine requires that those wanting to participate in the contest create an account with BLUECANVAS, which is free; put your art in the art gallery associated with your account, and then contact the magazine and inform them which item(s) in your gallery you wish to submit to the contest. You can see the profile that I created for myself at http://www.bluecanvas.com/jimplaxco/
The stated judging criteria for submissions are originality, technique, and title/description. There is a limit of 3 submissions per artist. For complete contest details, see http://www.bluecanvas.com/contest.php
The theme of solace is an interesting choice. I don't have anything in my existing body of work that would be appropriate for this theme and at the moment I'm drawing a blank on what I could create that would be appropriate.
The New Art
To illustrate this post I'm using digital art that I just added to my web site titled With A Flourish. For complete details, see the With A Flourish gallery page.
