:clap: Entered some work into two EBSQart exhibits and won Members Choice for my "Winter Spirits" painting in the Winter Show! I was very pleasantly surprised as 1st, I don't enter many shows and 2nd, rarely do anything but support the walls! (LOL! OK, this was an online show so no real wall was supported here!) This was my winning entry
"Winter Spirits" 24x48 oil on canvas

I like the feeling of this one, I see why it won an award! I also like the surprises like the rabbit and the white buffalo which doesn't stand out at first but your eye sure gets led to it! Nice work!

Thanks, Linda and Laurie!
Laurie, this was not one of my more planned out paintings, and in fact, the triangulation with the horse/rider, white bison, and the rabbit was an after thought well into the painting when composition just wasn't working and I was in a panic to make something happen....lol! (I don't preplan my comps very well even now!) I'm pleased you think it works! :)

Huge Congrats Kerry! :clap: :thumbsup:
This painting is certainly deserving of an award!
I love the feel, as to me it reminds us of the unique relationship between the Native American Indian and all of God's creatures!
