Robert Coombs Wins Best of Show

"Almost Sundown", Oil on Linen, 22" x 11"

When I was at Utah State Robert Coombs was the one guy that should have been showing at galleries instead sitting in class. Now he's taken home the $15,000, Best of Show Award, at the 2006 Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition. (Tony Pro won this award last year.)

"First Leaves of Autumn", Oil on Raymar Panel, 16" x 11"

Robert was also awarded the $10,000 Grand Prize at the Raymar's First Annual Fine Art Competition for the painting shown above.

Congratulations Robert!
