First In Show

Joan Garcia won First in Show for her painting "Cruising the Channel" at the Stirling Art Studios and Gallery in Dunedin, Florida. Judging was done by Christine Renc-Carter from the Leepa Rattner Museum. Her comments: "All of Joan's work is equally as stunning. I was particularly drawn to the composition and balance of color in this square format. The light and attention to dtail is exquisite. The luminosity of the painting gives a sense of depth and perspective from the viewer. The story unforlding above and below the water is equally as interesting creating a dynamic composition and narrative."
Prints of "Cruising the Channel" are available through Fine Art America and Pixels.com. The original is also available by contacting the artist.
