Judia Terry

I painted this one weekend when I kept my brothers and sisters while my parents went skiing.  I asked Mother if I could paint a real big picture --- she said NO!  Well, I did it anyway.  I charged the canvas at Stokes Paint Store --- they forgave me and were so proud of my work.  I entered it in the West Texas Fair and won First Place in the Youth Division.

In addition to teaching and painting murals and portraits by commission,  Judia has found a bit of spare time to enter local artist competitions, including winning the Patrons' Award at the Fiesta de la Paloma Art Show in 2003 with this painting, "Ellen."

Laird of Lag

Judia Terry, of Coleman, won "The People's Choice Award - Adult Division" in the recent Fine Arts League Show during the Fiesta de la Paloma, with her painting, "Laird of Lag," shown above.  Paintings are voted on by the viewers, as to which painting they think is the best of the show and the People's Choice Award is given to painting receiving the most votes.  Judia wishes to thank everyone who voted for her painting, as this award represents what the general public really likes.  The painting itself is Judia's conception of what Robert Grierson, a well known persecutor of the Covenantors and a distant cousin of Judia's, might have looked like during his youth, during the 1680's, and was done in the portrait style of that period.

These are just a few of the examples of Judia's accomplishments as an artist.  I will add more examples and images as time allows.
