|"Amethyst" 16 x 12, oil|
"Amethyst" has been awarded Second Place at the American Impressionist Society's Small Works Showcase!
A huge thank you to awards judge Peggi Kroll Roberts and award sponsors AIS and Art Cantina. Ms. Roberts specifically commented on Amethyst's visual power from a distance and exciting color vibrations:
"This work struck me very strongly from a distance. It has a very strong control of separation of light and shadow, but you still see broken color within the shapes. The figure is well drawn, great proportion, and the color vibrations are very exciting and close in value."
We weren't present at the exhibition's opening reception, but thanks to enterprising AIS staff, a video of the awards ceremony was posted to Facebook. The above photo is also courtesy of AIS, one of many exhibition photos available on their Facebook page.
The exhibition hangs until March 25 at Randy Higbee Gallery in Costa Mesa, CA.
