August's Winner!

Congratulations to Coastal Artist for winning August's challenge! His painting, "Song of the Loon", was picked by our readers as the best of the entries for the theme "Nature/Natural" and we can certainly see why everyone loved it. When asked about the piece, He had this to say:
"Although this bird is referred to as 'a common Loon' there is nothing common about them. If you have ever heard them late in the evening or early morning calling (singing) you know what I mean. I tried really hard to capture the song of the Loon as I painted this, I hope you can hear it too."
Thanks for the beautiful piece, Coastal Artist and congratulations again.

Congratulations Van!! Well done with the nature-natural theme. We love the loon. It's the loon's haunting call you hear when someone rings our wireless doorbell.
