First Place Painting Award


Autumn Mist wins first place for painting award...wow! real prize money! The show is called Art in the Barn; 45 paintings and sculptures were juried into the show which runs June 6 through 15 in the Museum Barn at The Lands at Hillside Farm in Shavertown, PA. It is a real working farm and agricultural estate which is undergoing restoration for the historical and cultural resource of the community. 570-696-4500

My pastel painting is of some barns and heifers on a farm near here in Susquehanna County. It was developed in the studio working from my memory and my photos. I am pleased with being able to capture the warm overcast atmosphere of a fall morning. I am glad it has been recognized with an award...especially in the light of the other high quality paintings in the exhibit.
