I Won 3rd Place!


“Happy June from TheArtList! 
 “Art takes courage.” –  Henri Matisse. We are thrilled to recognize a few fantastic artists who submitted their work to our monthly art contest in May: 1st Place: Deana Markus, 2nd Place: Nathan Moon, 3rd Place: Jane Reiter, and most audience votes Viewer’s Choice: Donna Maine Smith.  We post new calls several times a week – and occasionally some of them have a very short submission window.  – TheArtList.com Editors

Deana Markus - Artist of the Month

FIRST PLACE WINNER: Deana Markus was selected as the Artist of the Month with her painting: Winter Barns.  Deana Markus is a self-taught artist who has been seriously creating art since 2011.  She began by using colored pencil and enjoys that medium immensely.  As Deana began to develop her personal style she found that she needed additional mediums to express what her spirit wants to share, such as colored pencil, oils, acrylics, and pastels.
