The chosen works display a high degree of technical skill, as well as meeting the standard criteria: good composition, creativity and color. The top picks for each category, were works which gave me a stronger emotional response.
I would like to give a loud and resounding thank you to all of the artists who entered the competition. There were simply too many masterful works to fit into the limited awards arena. The works on display make me proud to be associated with such an amazingly talented group of folks. Lastly, love and thanks to the CPSA for allowing me the opportunity to judge this show. I am grateful and honored.
