A very nice comment about my work by:
Lawrence Bradshaw, Professor of Art at
the University of Nebraska at Omaha, U. S. A.
Curator of Upstream People Gallery, Omaha, NE
Professor Bradshaw states the following about this specially recognized work:
'RECEIVES SPECIAL INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION
Artist DENICE PETERS of DENISON, IOWA has received three Special Recognition Awards in
the "14th Annual Summer All Media Juried Online International Art Exhibition"
hosted by Upstream People Gallery"
"DENICE PETERS of Denison, Iowa is a master soft pastel artist who has brought together several outstanding landscapes with a rural setting. Her work "Around the Bend" is nicely composed with the main curving movement in the road, together with the diagonal movements of the hills on either side and the nicely depicted shadows on the road which is realistically done in blue as a rich contrast to the warmth of the land. "Beside Still Waters" captures the delicacies she found in the scene, showing the grass, leaves and cloud patterns, all showing a tremendous understanding of how to use pastel effectively. And her "Light On My Path" is another of her fine works. The contrast used with the close up and the distance seen throughout shows a high level of professionalism in technique and composition.
I am a lifetime native of Iowa and my studio is located in Denison, IA.
My work portrays the beauty around us everyday,
I want to capture the "feel" of the Midwest before it disappears.
And I Love pastels because they give that "Hands On"
