1st Place: Scott MacKay “Sponge Bike”
I was drawn to the amount of light on the photograph. The use of light and dark captured me. The amount of detail and texture is beautiful. The complementary colors are stunning.
2nd Place: Tricia Taylor “Time of Excellence”
A totally beautiful painting. Strong command of light and shadow. Beautiful washes and a great composition.
3rd Place: Georgia Strack “Yearning” [The painting was sold before a photo could be taken]
Composition is wonderful as we travel through the entry and into the gallery. Scale is proper and great way to showing the “Light” effects on artwork. Very good.
- Carol Spicuglia “Bygone Pasco”
Mean Cow. The perspective of the painting is wonderful. Lots of detail but not overworked. Artist captured the atmosphere.
- Maria Swanson “Cor Floris”
Amazing work of line and pattern. Beautiful composition and use of color.
- Susan Inniss “Hudson Canals I”
Canal and docks — a very well done watercolor. Beautiful sky and wonderful brush strokes and color throughout especially on the water. It’s fresh and wonderful.
- Keith Blanton “Wildflowers”
Flowers in the Fields — amazing attention to detail from the grasses to the flowers. Very well painted.
- Micki Tomasi “Attitude”
Lady with beautiful skin tones and blending of watercolor. The loose effect is refreshing. The inperfection is perfect. The absence of detail is a gift.
- Darla Nolan “Dan Feeding the Birds”
A wonderful mood painting. Nice use of neutral colors and gradation in the sky. Just enough light effect to make it!
