Juror of Awards: Bruce McCall

Congratulations to the Winners:

First Place:  Linda Dessaint – Sunflowers at Monadnock

Bruce felt that Linda’s fresh use of mark marking and strong use of color was “candy to the eye.” He liked the innovative design.


Second Place:  Debra Hughes Luoma – Blue

Bruce felt that the heron was depicted with a great life force. “Love animates this bird” True rendering with color and light, soft background and the texture of the plumage. 

Third Place: Keith Demanche – Vegas #1

Judge Bruce McColl enjoyed the fresh laying in Keith’s use of color. The design is unique as opposed to others in the show. Great use of lights and darks with the pop of turquoise.
