Fantastic, Matthew!
Did they say how many entries they received?
Yay for allegorical painting!

Thanks, everybody!
They said there were more than 1,500 entries.
Allegorical painting - now there's a topic for a thread!
I'll post when I know when the issue is coming out.

The Artists Magazine sent me the April issue with my painting featured as part of the Over 60 competition today:

The caption (based on my more verbose submission) reads “Three Women depicts three generations of women, suspended in a moment of existence: the daughter is bursting to take flight, the grandmother is soon to leave this world, and the mother is fully occupied trying to hold their world together. Each has her gaze fixed on her own future, and an approaching storm has different implications for each of them.”

Now I notice that the cloud is a character in the drama... The painting as a whole is also a comment on art, the moment out of time that encompasses all future moments.
