BEST OF SHOW AWARD- Prairie Village State of the ARTS

I am honored to have just been awarded Best of Show at the " STATE OF THE ARTS " juried exhibition. 
For my original oil painting: "Point and shoot in the yellow suit"

"Point and Shoot in the Yellow Suit" ©

Artist's Statement:

The bustle of a small town wedding erupted on the courthouse steps of a tiny German Village.
While everyone was focused on the bride and the wedding party, I noticed one of the guests in this regal yellow suit. The bright sunlight bounced off the courtyard and reflected into his colorful attire. In addition, his squatted position presented a delightful compositional element.

-Eileen McCoy, Artist
“Point and Shoot in the Yellow Suit” 

My thanks to the city of Prairie Village, Kansas for hosting such a wonderful event and to the juror Kelly Kuhn for her encouraging words. Kelly is the owner and director of Blue Gallery in Kansas City.
