SHADES OF PASTEL, 2009 Award Wiiners


"At Ease"
by JoEllen Murphy

Comments by Richard McKinley regarding this selection:

"The space above and below the figure is quite interesting and the space in the top left in contrast with the right offers up a balanced asymmetry. The zig-zag movement through the piece moves the eye around the painting.  Emotional and beautifully painted for such a small piece."
