HONORABLE MENTION IAPS 2013 WEB SHOW

In The Stacks

David Francis

I applaud the organization of value and color in this complex arrangement of stacked books. This painting well exemplifies understanding of the compositional adage "variety within unity and unity within variety." Differing angles, levels of planes and diverse colors, especially on the left side, energize the composition while similarity of color and value delivers harmony within this powerful painting. ~ Awards Judge Robert Carsten
