‘King of the Roost’ rules in art contest
Three artists, all members of the Tahoe Art League, were recognized for their work in the league’s contest for July.
Jeanne Hart is the first-prize winner for her colorful oil painting of a rooster titled, “King of the Roost.” Dramatic value contrast, effective texturing, and careful brushwork all contribute to this striking painting that she created for her son, Chris Hart, a retired fire captain. Contact Hart at (530) 545-9877.
The second-place award went to Corrie Francis for her dreamlike digital montage titled, “Snow Goose.” Francis is a freelance animator, artist and photographer, who works and teaches in the Tahoe area. Studies at Dartmouth and University of Southern California led to an MFA in animation and digital art.
