Let the pumpkin mania begin.  McDonald’s is peddling a pumpkin spice latte and every grocery store, roadside stand and farmers’ market is showcasing a plethora of pumpkins and gourds from the green and gnarly to the perfectly carrot-color orbs from which a million jack-o-lanterns will be carved. Meanwhile, I’ve given in and purchased pumpkin pie scented candles, ugh.  This Fall is time for you to showcase your talents–even if it is a painting of pumpkins.  Investigate…

JUROR:  Greg Scheibel has always felt a strong connection to the outdoors. Throughout his life he has spent a great deal of time hiking, fishing, backpacking, and closely observing his surroundings, which has led to a deep appreciation for the remote locations and unspoiled beauty of the West, which is the main inspiration for his paintings. Greg paints on location as much as possible, trying to capture an honest record of the values, color, and feel of an area. The emotional connection to nature which is the result of these field studies, is the foundation for all of his work.

Swiftcurrent Falls Glacier Park by Greg ScheibelYears of drawing, pouring over art books, collecting and studying paintings of artists he admired, and a general accumulation of life’s experiences contribute to what he puts into his paintings. Although still relatively new to the professional art world, he began selling his work in 2005 and became a full time artist in 2007, he shows his work in some of the West’s finest Galleries and has been invited or juried into a number of prestigious shows. He has received several awards for his work, and scholarships from the Scottsdale Artists School, an Award of Excellence from the OPA on 3 occasions, and was recently awarded Signature Membership in that organization.  He has been listed as an ‘Artist to Watch’ in Southwest Art Magazine, and featured in Western Art Collector.

AWARDS: $3,000 for first place, $1,500 for second place and $500 for third place along with 10 honorable mentions
