Welcome To The Artist Colony
2008 International Online Exhibition
It was my privilege as well as my difficult task to
select the awards for the 2008 Artist Colony Online Exhibition. I know very
well how hard an artist works on a painting. Therefore, I take judging a show
very seriously. Unfortunately, some excellent paintings that I would be proud
to hang on my wall don't make the winners' circle. As with all exhibitions,
there just aren't enough awards to go around. I had to choose 14 winners from
150 paintings. I have suffered my own share of disappointments in competitions.
If you win, be happy and proud. If you don't win, keep painting, have fun doing
it, and come back next time. Above all, paint what makes you happy. I thank all
the artists who entered the exhibition for giving me the pleasure of viewing
