I had been planning to announce these results last week, but life was in full swing and somehow I just didn’t get round to it. Better late than never. And everything is always in perfect timing anyway.
I first of all want to say a big thank you to everyone who sent me their artwork and it’s such a pity that I can’t just let everyone win. I’ve decided to run things a bit differently from now on. This means that I will also be showing some of the other images that were submitted, so that we have a lovely gallery of artwork on display and that honours those who took the time and got involved in the creative process.
After a bit of deliberation, I came to the following decision. The winner of the April mandala painting contest is Jane Cameron. You can see her silk mandala here and I’m sure you’ll admit, it’s a magnificent piece.
If you follow this link you will come to Jane Cameron’s Facebook page where you can find out more about her artwork and other things she does. And I’m sure she’d be thrilled if you ‘liked’ her too.
Well done Jane and thank you for taking part and sharing your artwork with us. I will need your full postal address so that I can send you your pack of mandala greeting cards.
And the next images you can see are from the other participants.
The first is Don Baker who paints amazing silk flags using fluorescent dyes. His artwork needs to be viewed under black light for you to fully appreciate its effect as then you can see the colours really coming alive. If you have a look at his Facebook page Color Splash – Silk by Don Baker you will see lots of his silk art work including links to videos showing his flags being used under black light.
The next 2 images were sent in by Maria Jurimae and were painted by her and her daughter. I am delighted that such a young artist took part and think she made an amazing job. Maria creates beautiful silk scarves and I’m sure you’ll enjoy having a look at her page at SingingScarves.
Don’t forget to ‘like’ them when you visit and leave a message to let them know you were there. Thanks a lot.
I’ll be publishing the next mandala very soon and would love you to come on board and send your artwork in too.
I’m going to be changing the format of the competition so that it will be even easier for you to take part. So watch out for the details very soon.
If you have any questions about it at all, please just ask me. And in the meantime, why not visit the SilkandArt Facebook page and keep in touch. See you there.
