Artists of the Arbuckles President Paula Matlock presented Walsh with his $200 prize at an Artists’ Reception Sunday, Sept. 18. The show winner was a bit of a surprise this year. It is a relatively small simple acrylic painting of a tree in changing fall color. Even Walsh is amazed that the piece won. It is one of several of Walsh’s tree pictures in the show.
