Splash 18 Runners-Up

Rachel Wolf’s Runners-Up Selections for Splash 18:

Congratulations! Reaching runner-up status in Splash is certainly praise-worthy! For Splash 18 we received more than 1600 entries from watercolor artists all over the world. I looked at every one of your paintings multiple times, and liked each one very much. I only wish we could publish a book of 250 pages to allow for all of the wonderful art work we receive for Splash. Thank you so much for your interest in the contest. We are so appreciative to all of you wonderful artists.

Keep on painting and best wishes!
