I received a Judges Recognition Award for "South Florida Sunrise #6!"
By way of an addendum to my post "Art Explosion, 2012" - The hors d'oeuvres were fantastic, especially the meatballs, and the cherry tomatoes filled with dilled sour cream. We had a glass of red wine as we walked around and looked at the artworks. Best in Show, "Big Puddle" by Alfred Phillips was a technical tour de force. His brush strokes make it look as though painting is an automatic process. Best Painting, "Player," by Gregory Little, a colorful and painterly grid with a human figure in front of it, was striking. My favorite though was "Orbit" by Francisco Scheuat, a marvelous construct made out of gum wrappers. "Lovers," a photograph by Gordon Nebeker won for best photograph, though I thought his "Dream," a draped male figure suspended in aqua colored water was his most innovative image. However, the best part of the evening (for me) was that my pastel painting won a judge’s mention, and sold. I am a happy camper this week.
