Persephone awarded in the Richeson75!

"Persephone" (pastel, 8x6 inches) $1150

I'm excited to find out this evening that this painting has won Second Place Other Media in the 2020 Richeson75 Small Works Exhibit and Competition!

Much thanks and appreciation to award judge David Carpenter! Here's what he had to say:
"I really enjoyed this piece for its use of color to produce light. Luminous is the first word that comes to mind when I see this piece from across the gallery. It also becomes more interesting up close because you can see all the marks that went into it."

The physical show continues through April 11, 2020, at the Richeson School of Art and Gallery in Kimberly, Wisconsin.
