January 11, 2021 UPDATE: “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” Though my painting was chosen as the winner of the competition, I was very happy to have been chosen as a finalist. And the competition raised a record amount (for this competition) for the Wyoming Arts Council. So everyone is a winner. 😉 (The painting IS available for purchase. Contact me!)
December 28, 2020 I NEED your VOTE (please)! OMG, my painting “Shaken, Not Stirred”, is a finalist in the 2021 Jackson Hole Still Works vodka label competition!! This year voting is online so people from all around the world can participate!!! This means you. 🙏 😊
Link to vote: http://www.jhstillworks.com/spirit-of-wyoming-voting-hidden Though there is a $5 fee to vote – please note that 100% of the proceeds from the contest benefit the WYOMING ARTS COUNCIL. You have until January 9. DO IT NOW!!!!!
Here is the painting, and how it would appear on the bottle. I created this painting specifically for this competition – knowing that the artwork distorts (enlarges) behind the vodka and glass, I planned it for the perfect explosive “geyser” effect. I LOVE painting geysers and thought it a perfect subject for this application.
Share this info – The winner is decided by popular vote (not by the owners of JH Stillworks or the jury committee that chose the finalists), as I am probably the oldest fogey artist in the finalist lineup (of 8) therefore the least social media savvy.
