First Place Award – Regional Survey

May 18, 2017

Clouds Over Grange Hall 3 – Oil on Canvas – 48″ x 36″

Thrilled to share news that my painting, Clouds Over Grange Hall 3, was awarded First Place at The Regional Survey of Art 14 sponsored by The Next Picture Show, Dixon, IL.

This work is a meld of two sketches. I have created several paintings of this farm. I have created paintings of the different buildings and have created a couple “longscapes” which capture the feeling of the land. I though that it would be fun to take this farm and place it in the presence of a very dominant sky. I grabbed a couple sketches and photos from a sky I witnessed earlier and merged them with this farm. I guess it worked. (The preliminary design sketch, 20″ x 16″ is also available).
