I love these receptions at the Pacific Art League! I always run into old friends, meet new ones and fall in love with lots of paintings!  Scapes was a big success, 35 paintings were selected from the 190 entries as far away as Connecticut. In addition to the first, second and third place awards juror Jim Caldwell generously awarded 5 honorable mentions, and I was delighted that my painting, Christy Ann’s Lace, was among them.

Betsy Kendall’s oil painting, Low Tide Meeker Slough, was a personal favorite. I love her loose, gestural style and subtle palette.

  1. WOW ! 35 chosen from 190. You are among a cadre of amazingly talented artists all in the top of their form.

    So nice to peruse some of the other entrants work. Happy, as always for you.
