George; I always try to start my week looking to see what new is posted. I have a full day and wasn't going to make comments, but I had to say how strong this image is in design, brush and subject. One of your best. Mike

GeorgeB says:

Mike-I respect your artistic input. It make me feel that I'm headed in the right direction. I guess my competitive nature is kicking in; looking for the prize at the end of the game. Thanks for your comments, as always.

GeorgeB says:

Martina-My hat is off to all that has gotten POTW. It's just that I and many others deserve winning once and a while. Because of our work and noting else. Your comments helped smooth the hurt. Thanks.

Hi George You got my vote, and I agree with all the other comments.Wonderfully painted.Think about what Clark says...Just post your work for input from other artists...Maybe the editor will explain what her criteria is for picking POW, that might help.I was chosen once too. I don't post for trying to get picked POW, I post for the comments and encouragement of other corel painters. Peace my friend. 5+++

GeorgeB says:

Ted-Thanks for your support and I agree with most of what you are saying. But, with my competitive nature, I am always looking for the prize. I work very hard to be good if not the best. And I think the efforts by me or anyone should be rewarded sometime. Just my point of view.

Kari says:

Gosh George: AT LEAST you got POTW ONCE! Look at my gallery, been 2 years and haven't got even ONE! lol! 5**** Very nicely painted, as usual.

GeorgeB says:

Kari-Your statement made my day. It really did. Maybe it's because we are from the wrong side of the ocean. Thanks for the visit. As You would say, Hugs.

Hi George, Great painting! Your improvement is amazing. Go to Amanda Clubb's gallery. That will really make your day! It is a well known fact that the editor(s) don't have a clue and you are clearly from the wrong side of the Ocean!

GeorgeB says:

Junk-It's been a long time; thanks for the visit and the vote of confidence. Every little bit helps.

Washed says:

Hello George... just stumbled upon this painting... very nice texture and use of shadow and light... I gotta say.... I have been on this board for close to 3 years and have only one POW and that tells me... 1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder 2. I must continue to practice and sharpen my skills and learn from the greats like Amanda Clubb, Ramsey etc. Amanda deserves every one of her POW's because she is a highly skilled artist and executes her craft to the highest level... we can't all be greats... what we must do is not seek the approval of others but be satisfied with our improvements as well as strive to continue to learn, grow and create better and better work. Just thought I would share. Great work as always George.

GeorgeB says:

Kim-I do appreciate you input but in rebuttal, some of the POTW should not be even considered. I have a very competitive nature about me. I like to see the game run by people that or fair in their selection or do away with program. Remember, England tried to take America from us after they rend us out of England. That is, after we took the land from the Natives. Just saying. I know that I will never get POTW now, but I now have self satisfaction. Thanks again.

Washed says:

Interesting... Have you thought about making a new thread on the forum about this? May you have peace George. :)

Posted 69 months ago

GeorgeB says:

Kim-How many people read the forum? The people in charge of answering question in the forum never replay to the question asked. I'm happy and at peace. I just hope that the editor and her staff is at peace. Thanks for your concern.

Junk says:

I did not mean to insinuate that Amanda Clubb did not deserve all 9(?) of the POTW. I just think a lot of other artists also deserve to be honored,if indeed that is what one should call it! As for the forum. Jordan Dill tried sometime ago to open a thread on this very subject and was quickly shot down by our ever so efficient editor.

GeorgeB says:

Junk-I agree with you on Amanda's work. I love her work and she "do" deserve everyone of her POTW. No flack will ever come from this end. Thanks for getting back with me.

GeorgeB says:

John-I share your feelings and do appreciate your input. I have seen so many images that are simply outstanding and some that are not. I use the Corel Painter software to create my images and that's all that should matter. Thanks again for the powerful comments.

Hi George, firstly, congrats on your picture of the week from me. You definitely have my vote! I have my favourite artists that I look at on a weekly basis who never fail to disappoint - and you are one of them. Your artwork is equally as moving as 'the real aussie' you posted a few weeks back. Please don't let competition get in the way of your beautiful works- let competition enhance and inspire them! 5++ from me. PS. I feel that part of the challenge of being an artist is not to try and not let the art get in the way. Please don't give up...

GeorgeB says:

Mark-No way will I give up and thanks for the vote of confidence. It's just sometime I let my competitive nature get in the way of common sense. I'm always looking at the prize. One that I know I will never get with this organization but I will not let it interfere with my efforts. Thanks again.
