2nd Bi-Annual Juried International Art Competition
Absolutely delighted that I was selected for an award in 2nd place with my painting Atlantic Crash.
I have always been moved by the great forces of the sea and its moods – calm, majestic to fierce. I witnessed this scene in a local town Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin and found it spellbinding to observe the pulsating movement of the waves against the rocks.
Juried by Reginald Charles Adams, C0-Founder of Museum of Contemporary Art, Houston
