  • VA Art Contest results

    Here is a picture of my two entries in the Va Art Contest in Seattle, Washington. Frank Sinatra got first and the Bassett Hound got 2nd. Personally I thought the order would be reversed but I guess it all depends on who is doing the judging.

    It was Judge by people from the Seattle Art community. I just don't think that Intarsia gets the respect it deserves from the art community.

    Thanks for sharing!

          Hey Tim: Walt here in the Smoky Mountain Area: Both pieces are beautiful.
          congratulations on your awards. Like you, I think the intarsia is best.
          Best regards, Walt Rollison.

            Congratulations. Yes the intarsia is great but I guess the judges were of the Sinatra era...

              I'd give them both blue ribbons!

              There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

                      Very nice, Tim. One question, what is the VA abbreviate? Just Curious.

                      When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                        Congrats Tim! I'm not so sure the judges don't have respect for intarsias...did you ask them later about the judging? Usually in contests you can speak to the judges afterwards and get their thoughts, regardless of where you might place. I find it's easy to lose with an intarsia because there is so many more places where you can lose points. Every piece of the intarsia can be judged, so if even just one is off, but the sinatra is flawless, the sinatra takes more points, although it may have been a bit simpler to you really have to concentrate and raise the bar with intarsias to gather some bonus points that will cancel out any lost points. Generally bonus points come with the pattern being original, the extremity of the difficulty level and the finish is a big factor have so many more variables as you can see to bring the intarsia down.

                          I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

                          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                          First off how thick is the board you cut?
                          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                          I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                          Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.
