Thank you to judge Susan Faust for choosing Patrick Saunders' painting "Sunrise Through Kaua'ula" (oil on linen, 14"x18") as a finalist in the May 2018 Gateway International Painting Competition.
Susan's comments: "This is a lovely, confident piece that is such a great example of a unified palette. It has such a great feeling of a moment in time. I love the transparency of the stains and the small brush strokes of more opaque paint. This is a direct and strong painting with a beautiful, luminous feeling."
