My ArtSlant Awards, Aug 12 on Flickr.
Another Award for a Drawing
In the era of social media and instant gratifications, it is often very lonely and despairing to be an artist or a writer. Solitude, dedication, monkish life yet often yields no rewards. Occasionally, a sort of recognition is like a shot in the arm and can propel an artist to renown his resolution.
Yesterday, I received such encouragement, or a kick, from the online art community/arbiter, ArtSlant.com - my recent colored ink drawing, was awarded its 5th 2012 Showcase Award.
So far, I have been recognized three times by this panel - two for my oil paintings (see image below). Drawing really is a byproduct of my endeavor but it is gratifying to know that even so, my drawings do have some merits.
