Clementina's Garden
by Eileen Logsdon Bugée

Juror's Comments: “Clementina’s Garten” by Eileen Logsdon Bugée is a fearless floral work that has bold brushwork, brilliant colors, and patterning; all of which summate to provide the piece with depth, texture, and atmosphere.  By laying a “field” of muted greens in patterns, flower buds, and swirls to frame and contrast with the bright, eye-catching purple of the flowers, Eileen makes those flowers “pop” off of the page at the viewer.  Compositionally effective, Eileen’s work generates a contrast between the muted greens and the bright purple; which expertly focus the viewer on the flowers while allowing for the discovery of ethereal quality underlining their beauty.
