I'm proud to announce that not only has "Thundering Hoofs" juried into the 2016 NC Statewide Pastel Competition, but that it has won the Art Spectrum Award!
This pastel is 16"x20" and can be viewed at the Hickory Museum of Art in Hickory, NC.
Worked from a photo taken at Belmont Racetrack in Long Island, NY, I was challenged to create the feeling of action with dirt flying from their hoofs and the dramatic colors of the jockeys clothing.
It was great fun to create and I'm so honored to have been juried in with over 250 entries and only 17 selected for awards.
Hope you enjoy my pastel paintings!
