SHADES OF PASTEL, 2009 Award Wiiners

JUDY PARDUE MEMORIAL AWARD FOR BEST LANDSCAPE
"To Basalt"
by Tom Weinkle

Comments by Richard McKinley regarding this selection:

"This picture is really understated and proves that less is better!  The use of pastel in economical, but expressive, and the color is harmonious. The rhythms of the trees and the lost and found edges are particularly beautiful. Great orchestration!"
