Jim McLellan chosen to receive the Christina Davis Memorial Scholarship

The Coachella Valley Watercolor Society is pleased to present to you the winner of  The Christina Davis Memorial Scholarship, Jim McLellan.

Jim said in his application “After years of working to raise a family, I recently became interested in pursuing my love of art.  Architecture and Structure are my favorite subjects,spatial relations and color work together in my abstract work.  I have enjoyed doing some fantasy themes while studying ink and composition.  I have never done plein air and I look forward to learning something new.”

Judges Comments:  “Appreciated his variety of submissions. Like that he is trying now to pursue his love of art.  Suggest that he continue to think big and outside the box.”

 I think Chris would  have appreciated his whimsical abstract piece, his fine line drawing of parrots and his land and seascapes in vibrant acrylic.  We hope you can join us in remembering a fine artist, Christina Davis.

 Presentation of this award is Monday, February 11, 2013 at 7:00 pm.  Joslyn Senior Center 73-750 Catalina Way, Palm Desert, CA 92260.
