OK, so I'm NOT into the 'Vote for me!!! Vote for me!!!' thing. A bit conceited and I think artwork should speak for itself. So, with that in mind, why am I posting this?....
At the request of some of my SLCC students. They appreciated seeing my work from the Provo Plein Air, Terra Nova Gallery paint out and so I reluctantly am posting this the night before votes are due. I do agree, nice to see the paintings, so special thanks to David, gallery owner and pro photographer, for posting the images. Yes, I was honored to place in the contest, more on that later, but I really don't think that should matter.
Go to http://terranovagallery.wordpress.com/ to vote for your favorite painting. NOW having said that, please do NOT vote for mine if you don't like them. A student of mine made a great point that it would be more fair without the artists' names. There was a lot of nice work painted. It is a popular vote for the painting, so vote for the PAINTING you like NOT BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE ARTIST... If you vote only because you know the artist, then it is no longer about the paintings.
What can I say, I'm 'old school'. My artist/illustrator generation didn't personally know Leyendecker, Sundblom or Jessie Wilcox Smith, ..but WOW...we LOVED their ARTWORK... (still do, they stand the test of time) Awesome!!!
Please enjoy the show.
