I unveiled this series of digital watercolor pieces last week. Since then, three pieces in the series have won top awards in five fine art competitions. “Guitar Lover’s Embrace” has won 1st place in the Life Is What Happens – Lost And Found competition and tied for 1st place in the Digital Manipulated Nude Photography contest; “My Guitar can SING” won 2nd in the Digital Mixed Media contest and 2nd in the Musical Instrument Abstracts competition, and “Guitar Siren” (pictured above – model: Sarah Fleming) has tied for 2nd in the Altered Digital Photography competition.
Then this evening I was thrilled to learn that Fine Art America staff have chosen to feature Guitar Siren on their home page! If you aren’t familiar with Fine Art America, they have over 2.7 million pieces of artwork by over 100,000 artists. To be singled out for a feature on the home page is truly staggering. I don’t know what to say — I’m so honored! (Understatement!) This to me is a real validation of my artwork and my drive to create. My art is connecting and resonating with the people who view it. What more can any artist ask?
I have been hard at work (OK, hard at play) creating more pieces in this musical series. There are several more in my Music Lovers gallery , and I will leave you now with a glimpse of one new piece:
- Music in my veins and art in my soul…
