"Her Wings Were Never Seen" ~ Acrylic Painting ~ Winsor Newton Competition

"Her Wings Were Never Seen"

Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas
30 x 24 in.

This painting is one of my entries for the Preservation is the Art of the City Show September 11-26 at the Community Arts Center. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Fifty local artists are selected to participate by a jury and a portion of sales will help fund preservation programming for Historic Fort Worth. I am working on 9 entries for this show and the above is the largest.

Winsor & Newton New Acrylics
W & N has developed a new line of acrylics that does not color shift from wet to dry. They are using a translucent binder when wet and it dries clear. The paints remain workable 20% longer than the Finity brand and they are not in the U.S. yet but watch for them. While you're on that home page be sure and click on the red paint spot near the bottom to enter a painting in their competition. You might win some art supplies. No jury here just other artists voting for their favorite painting. At the present my entry is on this page but click to see her because her head is cut off a little bit. This phase closes Sept. 30 and then you can enter again. The best view of the painting is click below on the You Can Vote for them here! link.

After you enter you will receive some code to place on your blog or web site such as this below. Vote for me or enter your own work or do both. Let me know if you enter and I'll vote for you.

Thank you, thank you, Barb. Enter one of your donkeys on the WN site, you might win some art supplies!!

Nancy...good going on the exhibit pieces. I am exhausted from a day of framing for an exhibit too. I even just photographed some frames today for my blog. Everyone must have shows in August. Did you see Barb Sailor's wonderful piece on her blog today? Wow.
I have heard about Winsor Newton wondering how they compare to Golden's new Open Acrylics which I have been trying out for a few months. I like the idea of no color change. I will think about trying to get into the contest. Thanks for the head's up.

Thanks, Elizabeth, it's great getting to know all of the artists and seeing their work.

Nancy Standlee said...

Ginny, do put something on the WN site and I'll vote for for telling me about B Sailor's work. I have some Open's to try out the WN aren't in the states yet. Smart girl if you can frame!!

Eva said...

She's great as usual and I gave her 5 stars.
I'm constantly amazed at how you keep up with all the competitions and workshops you participate in. I wish I had 1/2 of you drive and talent!
Good luck
