I hope I'm not copying others' comments - I try not to read the comments before I put my 2 cents in because I don't want to be influenced! But this is a true beauty - amorphous and inviting, it is spot on in terms of composition and value, too. No WONDER it got in! Congratulations!

Congratulations, Karen! I've been hearing so much about this art show on AHA radio and thought it was a thing of the past. Your painting is so soft and has a wonderful glow. Very impressive that you were able to pack so much emotion into such a small package!
