New Zealand "Portrait of the Artist" exhibition

The Portrait of the Artist Exhibition is now up on line for the month of December. Five non-participating artists are going to judge and select 25 out of an estimated 75 paintings in this exhibition to be included in a semi/permenant exhibition on line and large reproductions in a book which will include one painting from each artist who participated in this exhibition.
As I keep saying my photo skills are not very good so the colors do not come out like the original painting but they are close but the original is much more vibrant. I really want to figure out how to improve this skill but I don't have the time that is required to do so, sooo...I just have to let it be for now.
Stop by the exhibition, if you desire, they are rotating the paintings every few days since there are 3 pages, to be fair that everyone will have first billing at differing times. I must warn you there are some painting that may be offensive and uncomfortable to view. I wonder what happened to painting being about creating beauty, it seems now a days beastly, gross and drab are in, but for me I prefer representing beauty, for God created and desires beauty to be enjoyed and expressed.
