Swimming against the tide


I made a promise to myself this year to enter more art competitions. Sadly Covid-19 put many of the ones I was hoping to enter on hold. But many have continued online, which is good enough.


One already established online art contest is the Contemporary Art Gallery Online, based in Maryland, USA.


I discovered CAGO thanks to the super informative and helpful weekly newsletter from Artwork Archive - throughly recommended it for any emerging artists.


CAGO have monthly themed competitions, and three of my Wave paintings have ended up in their 2020 Water & Seascape Exhibition. So great to see the variety of painting styles and techniques on one page!


The competition selection is announced next Monday 24th August -so wish me luck!


Just in time for #MaritimeMonday, a new hashtag I'm following on Instagram. A great feed of visual and fans of water-boat-ocean-lake type stuff. Perfect inspiration for those who care about our Blue Planet.
