Blossoms II - Honorable Mention Award

Capturing the Sun, oil on linen 30 x 20.

About Blossom II ~ Art of Flowers sponsored by Susan Kathleen Black Foundation

In the world of floral art, there has not been a recent, major competition or exhibition equivalent to the blockbusters of other specialty subjects such as animals, birds, national parks, or the West. Blossom ~ Art of Flowers was conceived to fill this void and showcase the quality and diversity of the best work with a floral theme being produced today.

I don't usually get too excited about Honorable mention awards but I'm thrilled with this one. First of all, I don't normally paint flowers so it exciting to get recognition for this painting. Second, there were 2300 paintings entered so the Honorable mention is truly an honor.

The show will be online soon and I will let you know when that happens
