Enid Joy Mount Gallery Award
Whoopee! My painting at the Keizer Art Association show won the Enid Joy Mount Gallery Award!
It is the one posted earlier on the blog of the fall leaf. The painting of the leaf is titled "Fall's Festival" it is 32"X 20". The painting is colored pencil with just a touch of gold and copper leaf along some leaf edges. The painting is sealed with fixative and then sprayed with varnish so no glazing is needed. I had fun playing with the hanging position. It looks and feels different depending on which way it is hung (Landscape or Portrait).
I could not decide the direction I liked best so I put wire on so it could be hung either way. Then I left it to the hanging committee to decide.
