Announcement: I entered a painting into the 2019 summer Paintings Art Festival in Nottingham and I am delighted to say that it was accepted!
Like all of you I want people to like my paintings. One way to check whether people like your paintings is to enter competitions. The risk you take is that the judges may or may not like them. The painting will be in the exhibition in July and I hope that someone will love it enough to buy it.
unfortunately I am very aware that what one judge likes another might not. Juried shows are slaves to the likes and dislikes of individual judges. A friend of mine had one of her paintings rejected out of hand in one competition. The painting then went on to win a major prize and to be accepted into a museum.
I feel more confident in mu skills now that a painting that I have created has been entered into and accepted into a exhibition. I intend to enter more competitions but only when I feel I have something worthy of entry.
In the meantime remember – if I can do it then so can you! Enter a competition and see what happens.
