Entering a poster competition

About three weeks ago I found out that the 24th annual Bach Beethoven and Breckenridge poster competition had a deadline of November 15th. I had never really considered entering the contest as I have always painted fairly small. For me, 16x20 was big, and I knew the Breckenridge Music Festival liked a larger image.

I took a class through the local junior college in September and October and one of our assignments was to paint a large painting. I did a 24x30 landscape and found that I really like painting larger! I liked the way my painting turned out and it started me thinking about trying for this poster. What you see here is one of two paintings I entered. I know that as of Friday there were seven other entries, at least two of which are by a past winner, and there will probably be more before tomorrow's deadline.

Tuesday the 17th there is an event at Ski Hill framing where I think all the entries will be on display, and I don't know when the winner will be announced. As new an artist as I am, I doubt I have much of a chance, but you never know! You will certainly hear about it if one of my paintings is chosen!
