CECIL HERRING RECEIVES SPECIAL RECOGNITION

Artist CECIL HERRING of DELTONA, FLORIDA has received a "Special Recognition" Merit Award for the artwork entitled "Radical Pond" in the "4th Annual Color: Bold/Subtle International Online Juried Art Exhibiton" hosted by www.upstreampeoplegallery.com.

This international exhbition received over 700 entries from around the world and 81 artists were selected by the juror Larry Bradshaw, Professor of Art at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Professor Bradshaw states this about this specially recognized work:

"'Cecil Herring of Deltona, FL richly paints with oil on linen canvas. The brilliance of the colors are intensely felt in her artwork "Radical Pond".'

The exhibition will be on featured this month of December, 2006 online at www.upstreampeoplegallery.com and continue for 12 months, closing November 30, 2007.

Further information in the artist's own words:

"Radical Pond"
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.

...From a recent collector! 3/2006

Dear Cecil,
A note to let you know that I received Solar Wind yesterday in excellent condition. It is a breathtaking work and I sat and stared at it all evening, totally entranced. I will take a photograph when it has been hung and send to you. Thank you for such a wonderful piece.
Best wishes,
Vanessa


MEDIA QUOTES

Laura Stewart, Daytona News JournalArt Critic, 9/2/05

"When they go on view at today's DeBary Hall opening reception, the paintings in "Rediscovering Florida" will be close-up and personal. That's partly because the works by Cecil Herring deal with the state's natural subjects, from a view of Lake Osceola to orchids and the old cabbage palm growing by the side of the road. But it's also because of the Deltona artist's very direct approach."

from the wonderful artist Peter Lanouette, of Rhode Island:

"I am amazed at the power and scope of your work. I need the boost visually right now
and am humbled by your energy, vision and output.
There is a direct power there I have an affinity with and
will loot freely from your work for mine.
We're all in it together.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Thank you, again. Your work amazes me."
Pete Lanouette
