Congratulations to the September Best of Show!

Aries by Daniel Bilmes 

60" x 96" Oil

Judge's Comments:  I found Daniel’s painting to be particularly appealing for several reasons: When judging the basics (drawing, values, color, edges, composition), it meets my expectations, and tells of an artist with advanced painting skills. The overall mood created in the painting, and the artist’s use of design and expertly controlled value patterns, mixed with a variety of textures and technique, creates an interest that goes beyond first impressions of what might have been the actual scene (a taxidermic ram on display at a museum of natural history perhaps?). Depicting wildlife in art has been of special interest to me as of late, and I find this piece to be very inspiring! - Daniel Keys
