Glen wrote: It was a real pleasure viewing all the entries and sharing some of my thoughts on selected artwork. Congratulations to all who entered. There were many excellent paintings, and of course not all could be recognized. In judging the show, I considered every painting carefully and critically over several days of viewing and re-viewing. The paintings I selected were ones I felt demonstrated the strongest knowledge and skill in drawing, composition/design, use of color theory, and use of the pastel medium. Also ones that showed the highest degrees of artistry in expressing the theme of the show and producing artwork that was engaging and evocative.
Thanks again for inviting me to serve as your judge for this show. Happy painting:-)
