First Place: Shop Window Reflection
By Betty Jameson
This is a lovely piece. The artist manages to combine realism and abstraction. It is composed in an interesting way, causing the eye to travel around the painting. There is good recognizable imagery in it, with the flower peeking through. It has a nice depth of light and patterns of darkness in it. The splatter of white helps to subdue the colors.
