I'm a Winner in the Grafix Dura-Lar Contest!

I submitted this piece "Lazy Afternoon" to the Grafix Artwork on Dura-Lar Contest and was just notified that I am one of the three top prize winners. I'm so thrilled that my piece has been selected as the cover art for the Matte Dura-Lar tip and technique guide which will be on display in art and crafts stores worldwide. Grafix states that "one of the motivating factors for this project is to promote and educate artists in many applications, both traditional and non-tradtional, of Dura-Lar film. My artwork on the giude will be instrumental in sharing this message with peers and retailers - especially those unfamiliar with Dura-Lar film." Here is a link to the site which shows my artwork.

Please bear with me as I am in the process of moving right now. I haven't been blogging or even working on any new art as my husband and I are in a state of total confusion trying to make this move happen, during the holidays no less. We are only moving to the next town but we are downsizing from our large house into a condo. It's amazing how much stuff we have collected in the sixteen years that we lived in the house. I've donated a ton of things and could probably go through everything again and find more to donate. I'm hoping to be back to my artwork very soon.

Congratulations and well worth the cover. The film is quite interesting to draw on, if not a bit challenging until you have the learning curve figured out.

I haven't used Dura Lar for some time, but I do recall them sending me a package of the film to try for a piece that I had done on it some time ago.

Best of luck with the move.

A well deserved award - is this coloured pencil?

Best of luck for the move - we downsized 4 years ago and had to put everything into storage for several months as the new house wasn't ready immediately - it was a nightmare and I swore never again :-)
