Art Show Contestants

 The annual Del Rio Art League's Judged Art Show begins next Friday.  Today was the day to turn in any artwork to be entered into judging.  You are allowed to enter up to five submissions but I only entered three this year.  Here they are:

20" x 24" x 1.5" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

Named after a character from a favorite TV show (name that show!), and meaning "prince" in Hindi, I thought this a fitting name for the king of the jungle.  Well, prince of the jungle.

 "Tranquil Falls"
24" x 24" x 1.5" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

This is an abstract technique that I've been experimenting with some in the past few weeks.  I like the effect and it's affect.

"Red Watchman"
16" x 40" x 1.5" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

This is one in a series of three songbird paintings I have completed.  This cardinal painting is one of my favorites.  

The tiger painting is in the acrylic still life category while the other two are competing against each other in the acrylic landscape category.  I originally intended the abstract to be in the abstract category but the only abstract category they offered was for mixed media, as in using more than one type of paint, pencil, or chalk.  I should have added a bit of colored pencil so I could have a contestant in each of three categories.  Now I know for next year.

One of my songbird paintings won 2nd place last year in the landscape category.  We'll see if I get a ribbon this year.

If you are interested in any of these pieces, email me.

Which one do you like the best?
