I had posted this painting, Monsoon Colors, on my Painting-A-Day blog earlier this year and had entered it for consideration for the Masters In Miniature, C M Russell National
Art Show in Great Falls, Montana. I received word today that it had been chosen for the show. That is an honor and the second time I have made that prestigious show. It will be held in September.

Fabulous painting! What an honor indeed getting into that particular show! Congratulations! Please let us know if SOUTHWEST ART or any of the other magazines cover this one! Well deserved, Gary!

Congratulations! What sizes constitute miniature for this show?

Gary Keimig said...

thanks everyone.
Carol Anne the size limit is 144 square inches. Mine was 8"x16". 128 square inches.
Rosemary. Don't know how it will play out in the magazines. No guarantee mine will make it but will be in the Art Show catalog put out by the Museum which should be available I'm sure for a price.
