Just Desserts

Tell Me More

2nd Place Mixed Media – Hayward Allen – “Any time some new acquaintance says … ‘tell me more’ … I shut up. Living in the age of social media … one just never knows what evil lurks behind the mask of the questioner.”

Ideas Come and Go

2nd Place Mixed Acrylic –
Edsel Richter
– “Ideas like feathers drift into and out of consciousness. Great ideas don’t land in one’s mind with an entourage and the blowing of horns. Sometimes they pounce with the silent agility of kittens … and like little cats … they are off.”

1st Place Pastel – Sheryl Akin – “Coming out of the shadows is not like the spy coming in from the cold. At least the spy has a known home. People on the other hand may not know who they are, from whence they came and life is an eternal struggle to define oneself – within a world designed for others … but not for you.”

2nd Place Pastel – Judith Ray – “Blue representing the cool state of a clear mind invites the imagination to dwell in the world of the cool.”

Honorable Mention – Oils

Carolyn Adams – “In my abstracts I am always searching for spirituality. I use the concepts of space and its relationship between chiaroscuro and color intensity to create a statement of awareness.”
