July 2014: Seascapes / Water Theme

"These landscapes of water and reflection have become an obsession." - Claude Monet

Water is one of the most important elements for human existence. Humans and plants need water to survive. It creates lush landscapes and breathtaking moments. However, destruction occurs when there is too much of a good thing. Hurricanes and tsunamis have taken lives and homes away. Water creates different emotions, fears, and desires. Your challenge is to allow your viewer to be immersed into the different ways water affects our lives.

Our Second Annual Art Competition and Exhibition Theme for July is “SeaScapes / Water”. A call to artists is announced for the artist’s interpretation of the Seascape / Water theme. Seascape subjects would include scenes of coastal living, any ocean activities. Any related seashore subjects are included. Water can be anything from rain, a droplet, or a babbling brook.Water can be ice, a glacial, or running from your faucet. Be Creative with this Art Competition and Exhibition and have fun with it!
