ISEA Acceptance

The 2011 ISEA Juried Show and Symposium is soon coming. The juror's results have been mailed out, and this piece of mine was accepted. This is my second, of three needed for signature status. I was very excited when I found out about it. The show will be in Shelton, Washington. And will be hanging from June 1 through June 30, 2011. For further information about ISEA look here.

  1. Congratulations, Merle – it's a beautiful piece & I'm glad the jury had the good taste to accept it!

  2. Thank you very much, Richard. It really was an experimental piece–I had no idea what would happen when I poured some mixed leftover paint on the piece of paper. This piece was totally untouched with a brush. 🙂

    That contributes to extraordinary textures you see. Others might have discarded such a work – you saw the beauty, so you deserve all the kudos!

    This must be your work from the upcoming show. I am absolutely in awe of it! Was this done on Yupo? I wish so badly to be able to learn howto corrctly us Yupo to my advantage in my experimental work, but have had no sucess with it. And I have had no luck in finding anyone in my area who has experience with it.

    I have to tell you, sir, I have totally perused ech painting and photo on this site amd just blown away by your view of the world. How can I see more of your work?

  5. Merle this is Fabulous work & can see why it was Accepted.

    I am not a Great Drawer but have a very Creative Imagination so how do I Start???:confused: :dragonfly: :smurf: :wizard:

  6. Thank you very much Kelisha. Check online for workshops and courses in Watercolor in your area. There you can learn the basics of using paint and paper. And then and always, read, read all you can get your hands on regarding abstract and realistic painting. 🙂 Abstract painting is generally harder to do than realistic where you have a photograph or an object in front of you to follow. With abstract (non-representational) painting it all comes from your head, with the knowledge of design, paint and paper characteristics and a good imagination. 🙂

  7. Thank You so much on Learning Art Tips Merle & what a Privilege it will be to Learn.:yes:

    Abstract painting Sounds like my Sort of Thing as it all comes from Your Head & I have Quite a Creative Imagination.

    I couldn't find the Photo that's Similar to Yours the one with "Car Trails" I may have Deleted the Original Unfortunately!! I have posted up a New Daily Photo album up on my Photo Album Page & I am going to Transfer it over to my Blog soon Tonight "Photo Art – A Diary of my Imagination's Best Work" so Check it out when You get a Chance as There are some Interesting Textured Filtered Photos & also Landscapes shot with my Nikon Coolpix Camera.

    Good Day to You Merle & may You always be Happy & Inspired.:yes::angel::star::wizard:
