Last month my local craft store had a Paris themed contest where we had to submit artwork with Paris and spring as our focal point. The day it was announced, I knew what I wanted to paint and got totally excited about it and even told my husband to keep his bags packed and ready ....we are heading to Paris..yes, the grand prize was a trip to Paris for two with lots of frills thrown in. But then happened and I forgot about this contest or was forced to forget by the flu !

Not one to give up so easily, at the nth hour I painted and trashed and painted and trashed get the flow...finally I got these two ready and asked my husband to pick one . He chose the framed piece and I went ahead and uploaded it. I received no confirmation in particular and my work never showed up on their submission page. I thought it had never gone through and perhaps I was too late, although I was within the given time frame. This morning I received an email thanking me for my submission and the list of winners!

I was disappointed to say the least.

Well, at least I tried and now have a beautiful painting reminding me of  Paris !

                                8x10, watercolor

 a closer look....

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead!

  2. Your art is always a feast for the eyes! So beautiful!

  3. I don't know why that didn't win! It certainly is beautiful and thankfully you didn't have to submit the actual painting. You still have that. Glad you're feeling better.

  4. I'm shocked you did not win! These are absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing them.

  5. It is absolutely brilliant Sanketi. Sorry you had the flu.

  6. Stunning! I'm amazed you didn't win - maybe it was random choice!

  7. oh sigh..... just sitting here in awe of your amazing talent. these are simply beautiful. I'm sorry you didn't win, but I must say that you have so many admirers from all around the world who you inspire all the time.

    hope you are feeling better.
