The Owensboro Art Guild, of which I'm a member, had it's member show at the Ralph Center on the campus of Kentucky Wesleyan College this past Thursday evening.
The theme of the show was portraits, figures, or the figure in the landscape. There were many wonderful entries from paintings in oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and gouche. Drawings in pencil and charcoal. Pottery, metal, and other sculptural pieces. It's really a great show of work from our members.
We all voted for our top three pieces (no votes for our own work) and the votes were tallied and amazingly my piece, a watercolor, "Into the Sink" was awarded 1st place. It was kind of a shock to me, from seeing all the wonderful work there. So, I am humbly thankful to my fellow members for their votes.
Below is the painting that won.
"Into the Sink"
This is a scene of the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River as it plunges under the base of this canyon wall and disappears. The spot is called "The Sinks" and is located in Sinks Canyon State Park, outside of Lander, WY.
