I finally got a chance to visit the Spring Awakening show at the Pacific Art League that was juried by Los Gatos artists Maralyn Miller and Ed Lucey and I was delighted to see that I had been awarded 3rd place for one of my two entries!
Here’s the run down of awards, (click on the artist’s name for more information):
1st place went to Fred Holle from San Carlos for his acrylic, When Winter Comes Can Spring be Far Behind?
2nd place was awarded to Lyn Twitchell of Gardnerville, Nevada for her oil, Jessica 1. So lush!
3rd place was given to my oil, Lily of the Valley With Cows.
Honorable Mention went to Mark Garner of Palo Alto for his watercolor, Peaceful Reflections.
I Never Promised You A Rose Garden #1, a photograph by Robin Apple of Palo Alto also received an Honorable Mention.
Second Day in Yellow, an oil by Sagi Erez of Sunnyvale was awarded an Honorable Mention too.
I really enjoyed the exuberance of Cupertino’s Jennifer Blalack’s acrylic, Spring Reflected. I love how the blossoms seem to bloom out of a chaos of golden mud!
I was happy to see two fellow Los Gatos Museums Gallery artists in the show, Julia Watson of San Jose with her acrylic, Spring of ’13 and Deborah Gabris of Los Gatos with her acrylic, Spring in Pacific Grove, Carpet Ice Plants.
It was nice to see one of my photographs hanging in an exhibit for a change! Here I am with Dancing on Yellow.
My favorite in the exhibit was still Skye Becker-Yamakawa‘s Hesperia which was featured on the postcard for the show. Heavenly! How fun it would be to decorate a room around this painting!
