Mr. Potato Head Wins Big!!

My recent oil painting, "Checkmate" (Mr. Potato Head plays chess), won BEST OF SHOW and $700 in the Worthington Area Art League exhibit at Brownlee Hall!! I was SO surprised!!!

Judge, Paula J. Nees stated: "This is a strong composition with a sensitive use of chiaroscuro, which creates a poignant setting and instills in these toys an all too human nature."

Congrats !!!
Wonderful entry and great win.
This has to make me rethink paintings to enter… You never know. I love the innocence of this painting. Well done, well deserved. :-)
