Landed in Raleigh after returning from a wonderful week with the Watercolor Art Society of Houston (WASH) and received this email:
Congratulations, Ryan! I’m very pleased to inform you that your painting, Amsterdam Skyline, has won Second Place in this year’s Watermedia Showcase competition. In recognition of this, you’ll receive a prize award of $____ + free Artists Network Membership for 1 year ($__ value). Our competitions manager will be reaching out to you about the prizes sometime in the next month or so. In addition, your winning painting and your artwork in general will be the subject of a full-length feature article in the Spring 2023 issue of Watercolor Artist magazine.
I am honored. I have entered this competition numerous times and always assume I am throwing my $40 bucks away every time. What do I know? It just shows that you cannot win (or lose) unless you try.
This painting is currently available (unframed) at Studio 1407-5 at Anchorlight. You can see it in person on December 3rd for our bi-annual Open House.
The City of Raleigh is doing a ton of sewer line construction in the area. Don’t worry- you can get to the studio but some of the surrounding streets may be closed. We WILL be open and you can park in our parking lots on 1407 S. Bloodworth.
See you soon. I will have a lot of new artwork available in the studio (framed and unframed). This is the perfect time to purchase art from a real living artist.
