This pastel painting just won First Prize in a Capital Hill Art League juried show, and the prize is a solo show in June. Coolest prize ever !
The source image was a photo of an antique watercolor hanging in the octagonal dining room of a friend, which was reflecting a window, the sunlight falling across the room, and more art on the other side. Art reflecting art!
The multiple levels of reality and space, and the multiple periods of time intrigued me, plus the colors were inviting.
