Loess Hills Sunrise, 2007

16x20, acrylic on panel
Collection of Guy and Lorraine Bartlett

That magical morning returning from the Loess Hills became the source for various paintings. This one was painted to be displayed at the 2007 Omaha Artists Desoto Bend Nature/Wildlife Show where it received an Honorable Mention.

Judge's Critique

Design & Composition: !

Technique & Use of Media: Excellent

Use of Color or Value: Subtle

Judges comments: Excellent paint handling – sensitive, subtle. Very physically deep composition. I enjoy the way that the strokes in the sky refer to those in the trees. “Half and Half” composition—very effective—pulls one through the composition.
