Best Of Show: Time for Reflection by Eileen Casey
This painting has drama to spare! The color choices, high value contrast, and the freshness of mark making are exceptional. I knew this painting was a top award winner the minute I walked into the gallery. ~J. Aguiar
2nd place: Fall Light by Laurinda O’Connor
Fresh mark making and skillful use of underpainting make this painting unique.
This artist selectively used saturated color in areas of interest. ~J. Aguiar
3rd place: Beach Cottage by Susan Kerrigan
This painting is all about the balance of color temperature in the upper half.
Nuanced use of warms in the sky is balanced by the cool house. ~J. Aguiar
