My other piece on display at the Association of Hawaii Artists Contemporary Show was my first abstract in oil  Window on my World


Here is the juror's critique:
Window on my World: Strong visual composition.  Good use of complementary colors to suggest spatial dimensions.
>
>    In particular, I thought “Window on my World” was a little gem.  I liked your use of very bold geometric shapes and use of color temperatures and values to imply a sense of space as you looked into the painting, particularly the upper left part.  It was very nicely executed piece of work and I really encourage you to develop some of those ideas further.

Even though I did not win a prize, I feel like I did!

I entered my award-winning "A Trunk Show" in the Windward Artists Guild show this month. (six little tree trunks painted in oil on mini canvasses and displayed in a tiny trunk)  It SOLD today.  Feeling good about it.

Some of you might remember it from last year.


Thanks for all your support and encouragement.

Thanks, EmmaLee

It was hard to part with it because it was my first award winner.
