"The Flutist" an Art Muse Contest Finalist

We got the word in a great email last week. "The Flutist" had been chosen as a finalist in the Master Class category of the Art Muse Contest by the July contest juror Allan Duerr.

Mr. Duerr, who is editor of Art of the West magazine, commented about the painting: "So well done, actually very close to my first choice. Great use of color and expression."

The Art Muse Contest is a relatively new online competition, with a different judge every month. Entries are divided into 3 categories according to the artist's experience: Master Class, Emerging Artist and Budding Artist.
