Submission Call

  • Paintings created using a palette of vivid, bright, intense colors. Wow me with color!

  • Realism only, in the widest sense of the word, i.e., as long as I can see what it is, I consider it a form of Realism.
  • Paintings may be of an academic approach, or a more unconventional variety, they may be executed loosely, tightly, and anything in between—as long as the artwork contains lively, exciting color schemes.
  • Any media: Oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, inks, tempera, color pencil, pastel, etc.
  • No photography, video, or digital art.
  • All work must be the artist’s original conception, executed entirely by the artist.
