Part of the I received from the Editor of The Artist’s Magazine, Maureen Bloomfield.
Dear Lisa Schafer,
Congratulations! Your artwork, Almost Worldly, has been selected as a finalist in the Abstract/Experimental category of The Artist’s Magazine 30th Annual Art Competition. Your name, city, state and/or country will appear among the lists of finalists published in the December 2013 issue.
The competition’s entries, over 6,000, were particularly strong this year. As editors, we had a difficult task to whittle the field; it is truly an achievement that your work was among the ones we sent to the jurors.
Thank you very much for entering our contest and sharing your fine work with us.
For inquiring minds, this is the painting I submitted. It was not a top prize winner. Still, with over 6,000 entries, I’m very proud.
