MOONSET OVER THE MULLET

Judge’s Comments:“A high quality illustration which uses acrylic to its advantage.
Educated shadowing and depth makes this a lively painting.”

This mixed media has purpose and a pleasing color palette.”
Oil Painting by Artist MARY ULM-MAYHEW
Judge’s Comments: “The personalities of the two characters in this scene stand out.
By concentrating on the foreground, the eye is drawn to the faces, which convey a great deal of emotion.”
FENCE LINE SENTINEL
Oil Painting by Artist WANDA YUHAS WELLER
Judge’s Comments: “Confident brushwork and a forceful composition.”
O’ GREAT SPIRIT
Oil on Canvas by Artist PENNY KLEFSTAD
Judge’s Comments: “I don’t rate art on political overtones, but this peaceful nocturne scene contrasts sharply with the tipis currently facing the literal and metaphorical cold winds in Standing Rock, ND. This luminous creation is understated.”
CLASS DEMO – SUNFLOWER
Watercolor by Artist KATHLEEN MULHOLLAND
Judge’s Comments: “A delightful blended watercolor.”
Altered Photograph by Artist DALE VAN MINSEL
