Art Museum of southeastern Montana is happy to announce that
they have awarded their Best of Show
award at the biennial exhibit of The Little Picture Show to Buffalo
Gal. The traditional miniature of an American bison is
an acrylic painting with a metallic gold background that sets
off the deep, dark brown coat of this iconic animal. This feisty
gal seems to knowingly be aware of the viewer, who cannot help
but admire her beauty and the apparent softness of her
wooly fur. Linda proudly accepts this honor, comparing her paintings
to a celebration of life, filled with natures richness,
beauty and dignity. Buffalo Gal certainly embodies the essence
of this idea.
Also winning an
award at the The Little Picture Show was Fire and Ice,
which took home an Honorable Mention award.
The icy white snow of this miniature acrylic painting stands
in sharp contrast to the fiery golden grass in the backdrop.
A commemoration of life, the painting seems to offer a temporary
shelter from our otherwise fast-paced world.
The Waterworks Museum,
a non-profit cultural leader dedicated to displaying an array
of exquisitely detailed original works
submitted by artists from around the world, showcased these miniature
pieces through the months of November and December.
