So You Want to be an Artist 2011

We missed this as it was happening, but here is the winning piece for the National Gallery's "So You Want to be an Artist?" contest held last year. The winning entry was very good. His artist's statement was very professional as well. As much as we don't like artist's statements, a well-written one is best. Oh, the link this contest was through Ms G-E's appeal for support for valwitton's piece "Scarlett" through the excellent art blog at
