Forsythia and Chickadees by Kathy Anderson
40" x 30" Oil

Judge's Comments: I can't stop enjoying this painting. To me, "Forsythia and Chickadees" sings like the music of Bach. Kathy has a wonderful play of color harmony. From the sky coming through the Forsythia, to the sunspots on the foreground and her chickadees so beautifully placed, it is a joy to behold. Congratulations!

"White Pumpkin with Vines" by Daniel Keys
20" x 16" Oil

Judge's Comments: Daniel is taking still life (and pumpkins) to a new level in painting. His colors, edges, and design in this painting are superb. In this wordless language of art, "White Pumpkin with Vines" radiates. It always amazes me the things we can do with paint. Bravo!

Reverie by Jacquelyn Bischak

Judge's Comments: With superb drawing, edges and values, Jacquelyn creates a sensitivity in this head that stops time. I want to keep connecting with her, with this woman in Jacquelyn's painting. Look forward to more!

Sunlit Hill by Carol Epperson
24 x 36 Oil

Judge's Comments: There was no question in my mind that Carol's two paintings were so compelling that they had to share a prize. Both are different and both are superb. "Sunlit Hill" is one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. Carol's edges, color harmony, the sky, and drawing all work so well that this painting evokes a beauty inside me.

Cat in Chair by Carol Epperson

Judge's Comments: Immediately her playful painting "Cat in Chair" took my attention. In this high key painting, Carol plays with the green filled light coming into her composition and cat, flooding the room with a harmonious glow - a winner in my heart.

the recital by Robert Lemler
12" x 9" Oil

Judge's Comments: "The Recital" caught me and drew me in, and even now will not let me go. This small sketch gives me the moment, and the feeling of this boy. To me, it seems that Robert knew when he caught it, that magical something, and had the experience and wisdom to stop, so that he could share "The Recital" with me and the world.

Winter Pasture by Kathleen Dunphy

Judge's Comments: I think Kathleen had that magic tube of paint. She caught the light and atmosphere in this otherwise common scene so well. Her edges and color harmony are breathtaking - and look at that sky color!

Fiddler in Grey Sweater by Trent Gudmundsen
8 x 10 Oil

Judge's Comments: I hear the music in Trent's small painting, "Fiddler in Grey Sweater". This painting communicates this single vital focus so well. Bravo!

Safety by Robert Coombs
18 x 12 Oil

Judge's Comments: I can't stop being drawn to this child's face. Robert's design, edges and color harmony help me visit the rest of the painting, and then - come back to this beautifully crafted face. It is a delightful journey and the warmth of "Safety" grows.

Wrapped In Roses by Ardith Starostka
28 x 22 Oil

Outlet by Marc Hanson
14 x 11 Oil

Judge's Comments: This moment it time was captured. Marc communicates to me what he saw - beautifully and professionally. His edges, and the placement of spacing - the fencing, bush, and intervals between the trees, help this painting to sing.

Golden Glow by Ned Mueller
12 x 16 Oil

Judge's Comments: Color harmony is very important to me, which is why the yellow of the leaves with the purple of the mountains grabbed me. This painting would not let me go. The more "Golden Glow" took me on it's delightful journey, the more I saw and enjoyed. The ground, the earth-great harmony, the edges, the shadows from the trees, and the fence in the middle ground - all are gorgeous.
