Pastel Painters of Chicago Award:
BARBARA COURTNEY JAENICKE Juror of Selection and Judge of Awards wrote this about my painting; "Even on the coldest of winter days, when the warm glow of evening light envelopes the cool hues of snow and is captured just right by the artist, you have a magical painting such as this one. The artist here pushed the extreme warm/cool contrast of this winter scene to create that magic-hour glow. The warm sliver of reflective water is just enough to draw the viewer into the painting without overpowering."
I am honored.
Eastern Horizon, my pastel painting of a sunrise from my dining room window, has been included in the Pastel Society of Cape Cod's annual national juried exhibition; For Pastels Only. You can see it and some other top notch work if you are lucky enough to be on Cape Cod between June 18 and July 13.
So, if you've had your fill of sand and sun step into the cool halls of the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, 307 Old Main Street, South Yarmouth, MA. The Opening Reception is Saturday June 21 beginning at 6pm.
And if you are anywhere near Brattleboro this summer, let me know. We can meet at my studio...exciting news there...more room! Huge (everything is relative) expansion coming. More on that soon.
