GREETINGS ARTISTS: 

We hope you are busy painting up some wonderful paintings over this Summer Break from our Weekly paintouts. This will be our last weekly email of this Season.
We will resume the weekly emails and paintouts in the Fall, unless there is something of importance that we must notify the members about during this Summer Break.

Today we will be presenting to you our Light Chasers 2021 Award Winners for the 10th Annual Members Show & the Featured Artists Show.

Unusual composition and interesting color choices reminiscent of the thirties, and the tablecloth without visible support, all lend a very modern feel to a traditional subject.

"TRIBUTE"
BY RITA RUST

AWARD:
JERRY'S ARTARAMA--$50.00 GIFT CARD

JUDGE'S COMMENTS:
This delicately rendered painting of flowers floating in shallow waters in the sunlight reminds us that we live in a tropical paradise. The shadows are particularly well done
with a nice transparent quality.

JERRY'S ARTARAMA--$50.00 GIFT CARD

JUDGE'S COMMENTS:
Graceful and mysterious, this painting evokes something of the ancient fairy tales, filled with wonder and magic around the next corner.

"LOOKING OUT AT BEER CAN ISLAND"
BY DOMINIC AVANT

AWARDS:
M.GRAHAM & CO.--12 COLOR SET OF M GRAHAM ARTISTS PAINTS  
ART & FRAME OF SARASOTA--$50.00 GIFT CARD

JUDGE'S COMMENTS:
His use of color and atmosphere made me feel I was there.
This is simple and fresh yet very realistic of the place.
I really feel the hazy lazy mood of the day and the edge work bringing your attention to the shore and the sailboat.
An almost playful, uplifting invitation to enjoy the open blue-green water. Something sorely needed after a year of COVID!

"CRAB SHACK"
BY KATIE DOBSON CUNDIFF

AWARDS:
WILLIAMSBURG LANDSCAPE OIL COLORS SET, PALETTE KNIFE & APRON 
JERRY'S ARTARAMA--$75.00 GIFT CARD

JUDGE'S COMMENTS:
The value and hue changes in the complex composition is handled so well.  Everything very clear and the color is so lovely.
There is a great story being told here with a very pleasant combination of colors and values.
Love the light and shade!
Beautiful use of color and value creating the atmospheric feeling of a sunny day by the water.
