I am incredibly honored to find out that Ripple Effect has been selected as the finalist piece for the Artist’s Magazine 33rd Annual Art Competition in the landscape category. This was an extremely fierce competition with over 5900 entries this year. I am still stunned and in disbelief! I did not quite make it to the top prize category, but as one of the finalists my work might be selected to be featured in their magazine or website in coming months, so stay tuned! 🙂 All finalists will be announced on their January/February 2017 issue. I can’t wait to see the line-up of all the finalists! Congratulations to all who has made it!
This piece was created based on the photo I took several years ago when we used to live in The Woodlands, TX (the suburb of Houston). This is #3 of my waterscape series and with this piece my goal was to capture the feeling of serenity through the stillness of water, and how a small duck who is in the midst of its stillness (as though it is meditating) shows its presence through the ripples on the pond.
If anyone is in Tacoma, WA area, this piece is currently on display as a part of Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) 24th International Exhibition at the American Art Company, Tacoma, WA from 6/25/16 to 8/13/16. I will be making giclée prints on this soon so if you are interested please contact me.
