We’d like to congratulate Kimball Geisler for winning Overall First Place in the August 2022 PleinAir Salon, judged by Lori Putnam, 10th Annual PleinAir Salon Grand Prize winner.
“There was never any question that this piece was worthy of the top-most award,” Lori said. “Besides being immediately breathtaking, it has everything that all of us work to achieve: impeccable design, beautiful color harmony, and the drawing and edges are flawlessly executed. I am drawn in, right there, then travel about throughout the entire painting. I can feel the mist, and the power of the rushing water is so strong, that I want to step back from the edge to safety. Masterfully done.”
