An Appreciation by Ryan Brown
48 x 48 Oil

Judge's Comments: A complex painting that works so smoothly and seamlessly in its entirety. Each component is a gem, not a weak one to be found. Each piece in the composition leads me back to the woman. I do find some added interest in the model behind the woman glancing outside the frame – almost as if she is being ignored by the woman who has her back to that painting. The octagon shape works for me. Makes for a more intimate glimpse of her enjoying the artwork surrounding her. – Scott Jones.
