A big congratulations to John Brandon Sills for his recent win at Plein Air Easton, the largest and most prestigious juried plein air painting competition in the United States. Sills won the Renaissance Award for his painting Talbot County Dawn.
From Daniel H. Weiss, president and CEO of The Met: “It’s an understated image of dawn that suggested to me rebirth, revival, a new day, and I’m very happy to go into that new day following the art of John Brandon Sills.” We couldn’t agree more. Sills consistently renders the landscapes around him with an unparalleled beauty and subtlety. See more of Weiss’s speech in the video below.
