About the artwork (“Color the Season” winner):
“Joy” by Christine Echeverri
Medium: Oil on canvas board
Artist Statement: Colors and shapes are powerful ways to convey emotions. Joy is one of my favorite emotional places – exciting, lovely, beautiful, invigorating, cascading, flowing, moving. It does not stay put, but moves on from where it begins, rippling outward, and drawing people in.
