International Guild Of Realism- 2021 Spring Salon

Link To Exhibition

The International Guild of Realism has recently completed the final jury results for our 2021 Spring Salon Online Exhibition.  We had a huge number of paintings entered (over 750), and without a doubt, the quality was at a very high level. Thanks again, for entering our Spring Salon and for submitting such wonderful artwork.

Once again we received an amazing array of superb entries and our jury committee was quite impressed with the quality and creativity of the work entered. After reviewing the images over a week period, the final jury was completed. Deciding upon a limited number of paintings/drawings wasn’t an easy accomplishment, and the jurors could not resist adding many more pieces to this exhibition than originally planned. A high percentage of the entered IGOR artists made it through to the final jury so please realize that you always have a  good chance at being juried into a future IGOR event because of our small and juried only membership. We have artists from over 15 countries represented in the Spring Salon Final Jury including Canada, England, Norway, USA, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands,  Sweden, South Africa, Russia, Ukraine, Holland, Philippines, Mexico, Greece, Australia, France, Spain, Hong Kong and India. Plus we have a huge diversity of media in the exhibition including Acrylic, Watercolor, Oil, Soft Pastel, Colored Pencil, Gouache, Graphite, Pastel, Ink,  Tempera and Scratchboard.

Strokes Of Genius 12– The Best Of Drawing

Opportunities for paintings can present themselves at unexpected times.  My plan on that particularly sunny day was to take a photo of my husband playing his  guitar for his social media profile.  

Cue the sunlight and cheery music; the stage was perfectly set. But as I entered the room with my camera his expression was so pensive. What was up with that? Shouldn’t strumming ‘You Are My Sunshine’ on such a day  present a smile upon his face?.  

I could instantly see that a change in purpose was in order.  As artists we’re always looking for contrasts: usually  in light, shapes, textures  or colours.  This though was a contrast of the senses; and I was keen to capture it.  Seizing the moment I stole a few unobtrusive shots which would later be used for my painting ‘Contemplation’.
