Ragland family's art recognized at the fair

FALLBROOK – Jack, Marilee and Natasha Ragland all won ribbons for their animal depictions in the San Diego County Fair Wildlife Art Competition June 29. Jack made a charcoal drawing of two mustangs fighting; Marilee drew two bunnies munching and Natasha painted a raccoon.

Two paintings from Natasha were juried into the Fine Art Exhibition this year. “Donna’s View Over Gird Road” was her interpretation of a beautiful local spot which she visits weekly at the home of her advanced piano student/duet partner Donna Wheeler.

“Randie’s Flamenco Celebration” was a portrait of her friend Randie Wilson playing guitar with several Flamenco dancers and supportive spectators (including the artist) improvising in the background.

Jack also had two paintings juried into the painted Fine Art Exhibition this year. In “Sailboats in the Golden Light” in the harbor, he used artistic license adding distant hills. He also revisited a chapter in his daughters’ childhood when they were running down the hill through the wildflowers, “Spring Fever.”

In addition to the previous honors, Natasha won the People's Choice Award June 29 for "Donna's View Over Gird Road."
