“Winter’s Moon” Original Painting by TECH Artist, Madison Budreau

Donated by: TECH, Inc.

This was Madison’s first experience with watercolors. It was clear from her practice piece that she is a natural. Madison worked to make the painting have the feel of a cold winters night with the glow of a frosty moon and far surpassed all expectations. When you look at this piece, you can FEEL the glow of the moon shining on you at night. She used salt and masking fluid in this piece; materials that a novice would not generally use. Her dedication allowed her to master this piece like a pro!
