Many thanks to Karen Keating, juror, who awarded this painting Best in Show at the Capitol Hill Art League in the "I See Scapes" juried exhibition. Although this is one of my all time favorites, it didn't seem to appeal to judges and was rejected several times, until I changed the color of the mat to off white. I've certainly learned my lesson in that regard.
