Cumberland 4

Two more farm paintings, later in the evening.(above) Early in the morning with rising fog. (below)
And a bit of good news! Last night was the awards ceremony. The show is amazing with a wonderful diversity of style. I am honored to be selected to be part of it. To my shock and absolute delight I won an honorable mention for the painting "View of Cumberland." Here is a link to post.
Al Gury was the judge of the show and he was happy to take the time to speak with all of us about our work. He is the chair of the painting department at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. You are fortunate if he is your teacher! Look to his many books, of which I own one "Alla Prima." Check out this link to see it.

Thank you so much Donna, John and Lisa! I had omitted the fact that I was so down on myself after the quick draw that I didn't even submit my painting. "I can't paint" was my feeling...so as you can imagine it was quite a roller coaster that day. Thanks again.

HI Loriann,
Congrats on the Honorable Mention. That's all it takes to help get you through those roller coaster feelings during those tough competitions. Beautiful work, evokes a sense of heightened reality.
