Yeehaa, basking in the sunlight of my second Sojie nomination! :D


Under the Mediterranean Sun
by Tom Furey

Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I am very excited to have my art selected, from over 43000 works of art, to exhibit in SoJie 6. SoJie 6 takes its name from the Solo Exhibition group’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. This month is only the 6th one, ever, and 62 other artists, besides myself, are represented.

Winners of the invitational will be announced on September 1st, when a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded in three categories: digital art, photography, and traditional art.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the work nominated. So I hope that you will click the show banner, above, and follow the link to view my fellow exhibitors. The works are shown “gallery size” and are beautiful, seen together.

If you do not belong to the group, Solo Exhibition, you cannot participate in commenting; and joining to comment is not encouraged. But you CAN lend support by commenting in my journal, here, about the show.

THIS JOURNAL IS ALSO PART OF A WEB RING. You can also follow other artists involved, by clicking on the WEB RING BADGE below. You don’t need to be a member of Solo Exhibition to show your support, this web ring is especially for non members! Thank you!

    This is a superb work of photography. Congratulations! Woo hoooooooooo!

  • Lol, ‘fraid you’ve made a common mistake with my stuff Debi. It’s actually a digital painting on a blank (computer) ‘canvas’. No photos were harmed in it’s creation :)) Anyway, thanks for the congrats…very much appreciated! :))

    Welcome to the SoJie 6 Web Ring, Tom!

    And you are again, this time, with – surprise, surprise – another digital painting that could be an oil or acrylic on canvas. You are so adept at this genre, Tom. I’m really happy that our Solo artists are noticing your work, and nominating it for the shows. The Solo Juried Invitational Exhibitions provide great exposure. Even those who don’t comment, do see.

    Your Mediterranean scene borders on surreal. The ever so slightly stretched buildings give it a stylized edge that makes the viewer look twice to ascertain their bearings. Now, am I viewing this from a cliff, or a hang-glider… as a bird, or an “Other”. From any point of view, it is beautiful and inviting.

    Congratulations on your nomination, Tom, and your exhibit in SoJie 6!

    All the best,

  • Appreciate the welcome Frannie, so glad to be here again! :)
    Thanks for your comment about looking like a ‘real’ painting on canvas. I REALLY strive to create that effect, to give the impression that a print of my work could have come from a traditional source.
    And I loved the ‘surreal’ comment! I actually did stretch the perspective on the buildings to make them appear taller and splayed out at their tops, trying to create the impression they were welcoming the sun into their little cove. This is quite a common view of Vernazza, so if you come across a photo of it you’ll see the difference :)
    Anyway, enough of my babbling! Thanks again…and back to the Ring! :))
