Piece description from the artist
Shingler's paint-handling is beautiful in this depiction of Mosca, San Luis Valley. Colorado. Blue-grey drips sit against soft, fluffy marks in the foreground while the picture plane recedes into a subdued, blue horizon line.

He finished first in his class and was chosen to receive the highly prized first "Agnes Gund":http://www.huffingtonpost.com/agnes-gund traveling scholarship for international travel.
