   Best of Show
Award Sponsor: FASO
Judge: Brian Blood

'Urban Passage' by Jennifer McChristian
12 x 9 Oil



Note: I very much liked the simplistic, bold brushwork. Very interesting use of light and shadow and a strong composition. The subleties in this painting were wonderful.







   2nd Place
Award Sponsor: FASO
Judge: Brian Blood

San Lorenzo Sunlight by Margi Lucena
14 x 11 Pastel



Note: I thought all three of Margi's entries were very strong works. Loose and vivid pastel colors popped from the paper to create interesting scenes. Up close they are very loose but when you back up they really come together beautifully.







   3rd Place
Award Sponsor: FASO
Judge: Brian Blood

Persimmons by Mark Farina
14 x 11 Oil



Note: I liked this painting for it's rythmic design, beautiful color sense and overall imact. A case where sometimes an intimate, otherwise unnoticed subject can become a great painting.

Gondolier - study #233 by Chuck Larivey
10 x 8 Oil



Note: I had a hard time getting these guys out of my head. I really liked the looseness of Chuck's brushwork. I also feel like I'm listening in on their conversation during their break from the tourists.

Untitled by Aldo Balding
36 x 48 Oil

Summer Day by Tibor Nagy
16 x 12 Oil



Note: I found the mood and palette exciting in this work. Beautiful greens, loosely applied. A bold, take no prisoners, approach. Well done.
