Good news! Three of my recent monotypes were accepted into the 8th Annual East End Art Guild Juried Show. Rafael Trelles, a well known surrealist artist, was one of the three jurors. Word has it there was lengthy discussion on the merits of each entry; only 53 were accepted. The show hangs in January 2007 in Humacao, Puerto Rico.

Miss said...

I am not surprised! they are lovely, well done!

Diane Cutter said...

Thank you to all of you!

Barbara... Would you believe I actually have a collection of drawing on cocktail napkins, as result of lot of time in airplane windowseats? Some of that must leach over into other work!

Annie b... Thanks and I haven't forgotten you wanted to see a final print of the jaguar, which will go up this week.

Viza... Although I obviously like all, my favorite wasn't picked! Go figure! Why do artist's prefer the pieces jurors don't...

Miss... Thank you for the kind words; they are much appreciated!

Lovely blog and paintings, Diane!

I wanted to ask you if you would like to write something about this blog and your art that I could include in a post on the new Art Blogs 4 U site?

I want to try and raise the profile by posting once or twice a week about the artists, in addition to maintaining the List itself.

Hope that you will agree to it .. but no worries if you don't feel that you want to. Sorry to ask you here but you do not have an email facility on here.

best wishes

Lesly

Thanks, Flo and Amy...

Amy, the ink used was Daniel Smith oil-based black and then I went into it again with watercolors.
