A landscape painting by San Clemente artist Rick J. Delanty was recently selected for the 29th Best of America National Juried Exhibition, to be presented by the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society at the Montgomery Lee Gallery in Park City, Utah from September 27 to October 27. From 885 submissions, 125 were selected for the show. The Society’s goal for the exhibit is “to honor the best in oil and acrylic painting, selected for quality and the artist’s individual mastery of the medium.”
Delanty’s painting was inspired during an ocean swim past the beach entrance to San Clemente’s Cyprus Shore Park, when he glimpsed the towering palm trees reaching toward the sky. That glimpse inspired a vision of a nocturne in which the moon shone between the trees, and the stars bore similarity to the lights of the homes near the park, a visual connection of earth to heaven.
