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 http://artshhs.blogspot.com/

This is a place for young artists to get wider audiences and reap the recognition they so deserve. The Canada School is the place to display Canadian student work to the world. Email submissions or questions to us at email@example.com, or comment on the artwork under the posts.
Many of these kids need funds for university. If you like a work or want to commission something for your private collection, we can pass on a message to the artist. Don't delay!
