Kathleen Denis NOAPS Best of America Exhibition in Cincinnati

Artist: Kathleen Denis

Title: Warmth of the Sun

Size: 14" x 11"

Medium: Oil on Panel

Congratulations to Kathleen Denis for winning the "Best Impressionism" award, and a gift card to Wholesale Frame, at the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society (NOAP) Best of America Exhibition in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Her painting “Warmth of the Sun” is inspiring on many accounts.  The painting was made in Key West Florida just before hurricane Irma.  While there is still hope of its survival, Kathleen notes how “this demonstrates the value in capturing scenes that may no longer exist.”  Scheduled to attend the exhibition in person, her trip was canceled due to her mother going on hospice just days before.  With the passing of Kathleen’s mother, the award was just a little sweeter. “I felt like it was a little ‘kiss’ from my mom.” Thank you for sharing your story and your beautiful art work. Wishing you and your family all the best.

And while they had not formally met, she had a connection to him.
