News from Signature Member Steven Hill:
I have just been notified by Stephen Doherty, editor of Plein Air Magazine that a pastel I did last fall “Sol Duc Morning” has been awarded “Best Overall Pastel” in the October/November bimonthly Plein Air Salon competition. The jurist was Jim Peterson, owner of Mockingbird Gallery, Bend, Oregon.
It was painted en plein air during the “Paint the Peninsula Invitational Juried Competition” held at Port Angeles Fine Art Center last September. The same painting won an honorable mention at that event, by jurist and noted plein air artist, Gil Dellinger and now resides in my permanent collection.
This painting is now a semi-final winner and will be considered for the cash awards which will be announced during the PleinAir Convention in Tucson, AZ in April 2016. It will also be printed in Plein Air Magazine Salon, February/March, 2016 issue. www.pleinairmagazine.com
