Art Sunday - A Bit of Bragging
I was judged Best of Show at the Red River Art and Wine Festival yesterday. And wanted to honor the judge and his work today. Ed Sandoval is one of the best known artists in the Southwest today. He was born in Nambe, New Mexico and currently lives in Taos where he is considered one of the local characters. Artists must have character.
I met him for the first time yesterday and found him very enchanting and very serious about his judging chores. He was considering composition and use of color and handling of medium and overall presentation. So naturally after receiving the award I felt highly flattered and went immediately to Google when I got home to review his work.
I am not sure if I am most impressed with having won Best of Show or having met this living legend of the artistic world or that he considered my paintings worthy of note.
