James and I apply to the "Art of Action": Shaping Vermont's future through art

James and I both recently applied for the "Art of Action" competition in Vermont. Above are one of the ten images we each submitted, (is that awful English...I can't tell anymore, but you know what I mean, don't you?) "Gilding the Lily" is mine, it is a watercolour on paper, and the other, "Chinese Poem #1", is James' beautiful oil on panel.

Here is the description of "Art of Action" from their website where the above images are posted for all the wide world to see, how nice is that?

"The Arts Council is collaborating with visionary Vermont entrepreneur and philanthropist Lyman Orton to produce and deliver the ART OF ACTION. This unique project will commisssion ten visual artists to create works that address issues shaping Vermont’s social, political, environmental, and economic future."

Wish us luck on getting through to the next round where we get to formulate an artistic vision of our own for Vermont...sounds like a fun and interesting challenge to me!

Good luck to you both. I must say, you do sound as if you live in an artist friendly place.

Indeed we are very lucky to live in this part of the world where art is a big aspect of the tourism trade. Vermont and Maine are both very active in promoting their artists and James and I really appreciate it.
Thanks for the good luck!
