Today's PaintAmerica Top100 Featured Artists: Sandy Askey-Adams and Amy Bartlett Wright
Pennsylvania artist Sandy Askey-Adams is becoming a frequent winner in PaintAmerica competitions. Her beautiful pastels have now been juried into three PaintAmerica shows. "After the Rain" was juried into the this year's PaintAmerica Top100. She also had another painting in the Second100. "After the Rain" is "16x24" pastel, priced at $2,800. Sandy is one of the friendliest people you'll ever meet, and is very popular among other artists for her networking and social media skills.
Amy Bartlett Wright of Portsmouth, RI, also had two works juried into the 2009 PaintAmerica show - one in the Mini Top50 and another in the Mini Second50. "Osprey Island" was her Mini Top50 winner. It is a 10"x16" acrylic, priced at $1,000. Amy was a winner in the 2008 PaintAmerica Top100, with a much larger piece, more in line with what she usually paints. With a degree in Scientific Illustration, she is well-known for her large scale murals for zoos and animal habitats.
