"River Bank" oil, landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"River Bank"   6x11 oil on panel    $350   Available through Gallery North

Sometimes rather than look to the broad, majestic landscape it is interesting to narrow your focus to a more intimate portion of the scene. That's what I did with this small painting of some rocks along the bank of the Wenatchee river.

You can view this painting as an example of the jurors work along with  many fine intimate paintings at Gallery Norths, Small Works Show in Edmonds the entire month of March. This was my first time to judge an art competition and it was as challenging as I thought it would be. I have a lot of respect for those artists willing to serve others in this way.

If you are thinking of entering a juried art competition to further your career or just for fun it's a good idea to do some research on how to best go about it. HERE is a link to one discussion on getting it right but there is a wealth of info on line to help you be successful in this endeavor.
