Clear Day
by Kathleen Dunphy
Oil 18 x 24

Entered in: October 2009

Judge's Comments: Clear Day” shows excellent composition and a successful way of moving the eye not only across the canvas but through space into the distance. The artist has made effective use of atmospheric perspective, color saturation and edge control to convey this sense of space. The complementary color harmony is accented quite beautifully by the red sea kelp. My response to this painting is quite visceral – I have been in a place like this – I can look at “Clear Day” and smell the earth and the ocean, and feel the moisture in the air. I couldn’t ask any more of a landscape. - Chris Saper
