in the artist's own words:
I go by this pond on the way to my daughter's house. Sometimes,
I park by the road and take photos from my car window. It was
a bit overcast that day and not as colorful as I like my landscapes.
So I tried to make color from not much color and this was the
result! I call it Radical because I got radical with the color
using a painting knife, scooping up thick globs of paints, making
each stroke serve for a large area and not mixing any of it. I
wanted to say there is action here and an ever changing in the
moment aliveness in a landscape."
Five of Cecil Herring's
works were accepted by the judge out of five entries.
Along with Radical
Pond, Cyclamen, Orchid Bouquet, Puzzle Lake, and Remains of the
Day were all accepted.
