Hey Brian,

 

Sorry to bother with a question - I submitted my question to the info mailbox for the competition, but it seems like it's bouncing email.  I was just wondering if black or gray papers are okay to work with, or does it need to be only white surfaces?

 

Best,

 

Ken

No doubt, oil paintings are synonym to abstract art and depict the real inside feelings of the artist on canvas. You will get opportunity of oil work of art for sale several times in your city, country and nearby area. It is so; many of the famous painters put their paintings on sale to collect a handsome amount of fund for any social cause like charities etc. These masterpieces serve as the best and excellent gift for loved ones. These paintings will represent your real love and respect to the receiver.

I noticed the:

"EXTENDED DEADLINE: OCTOBER 12, 2012. "

But when you go to the contest page it still has: "SEPTEMBER 10, 2012"  Then I click on the link to enter and it just reloads the current page.

Is this supposed to be like that or what?

It's confusing....

Thank you for taking time to answer my mail.

My question is I had done a gray shades painting in a still life and is done in oils.

Would this painting quantify for the shades of gray? contest.

I'm 71 yrs old now, in 2007 I retired age 66 and started oil painting class at a local adult class. I never painted in oils I was very scared.

Now oil painting is my favorite media.

Hi - I entered my husband into this competition on the 1st of August (we are in South Africa) and I can't see any of his works in the Shades of Gray Gallery? Does one need to request it to go into the gallery or is it automatic?

Thanks so much. Gina

I think you have to upload it to the gallery your self.

At the gallery on the top right is the upload button.
