Every August, Perkins Center for the Arts hosts a rendering contest. A building in Collingswood, NJ is chosen to be drawn. This is the third year I’ve participated in the competition. I am very thankful for this yearly opportunity to publicly paint with other artists in the area.
The first year (2008), I made this painting of a church on Haddon Avenue. Last year, the chosen building was the Collingswood PATCO station. My pencil rendering of its interior received second place.
Tickets, Please. Graphite on paper. 9″x12.”
Framed and ready to hang: $175.00
This year’s building was the Perkins Center for the Arts. I chose to work in the watercolor and ink pen style I’ve been experimenting with all summer. Yesterday, my piece won first place in the painting category.
