This painting can be seen at McDowell Art Center, 100 E. McDowell St., Matthews, NC all through February.
I entered "Golden Aspens" in the Winter Guild of Charlotte Artists show and it won first place. This painting come from a photo that I took while traveling through Wyoming last Fall. I try to paint what I feel when I see a beautiful landscape. The judge's words describe what I was hoping people would see in this painting.
Judge: Siu Challons-Lipton
"The verisimilitude of this landscape painting is suggested in the golden leaves against purple grey trunks. The textured brush expresses a sense of place that is felt as much as it is seen. The experience of the piece moves from an optical one to a feeling for light, color, leaves, and place."
