Top 50 Mini Selection

2nd 50Mini selection

2nd 50 Mini Selection

Hi everyone , I have some good news to share (good thing because today was a disaster of a day LOL). I have just been informed that one of my paintings was selected to represent the state of Connecticut in the Paint America Top 50 Mini Competition and two others were selected for the 2nd 50 Mini category. This is a very interesting competition and I was fortunate enough to have three paintings selected to be part of it last years also. Here's how it works: Large size paintings can be entered into the Paint America Top 100, paintings must represent one of the 50 states. A panel of judges selects 2 pantings to represent each state, thereby creating a collection of 100 paintings that represent America. This collection will travel to galleries all over the country for the next year. There is also a Top 50 Mini category, with one small format painting to represent each state, this collection will also travel around the country for a year. The 2nd 50 Mini category, selects 2 pieces from each state, this collection will be on the website, and in the catalog (I think?) but will not travel with the exhibit. So, last year I had 2 paintings selected in the large size category to represent CT and also a small one in the Top50 Mini. This year I had many more small works and I entered three into the mini category and have had one selected for the Top 50 and 2 others for the second level. Now I have to pack up the painting and send it off to Topeka, KS and it will start its journey across the USA! Check out Paint America here.
