D001 "Great Horned Owl"

Judge's Comments: I enjoy the creative manner in which “Great Horned Owl” has been portrayed. The rhythmic textures of the chest feathers is especially nicely done. And of course, “the eyes have it” – they look right through you!

D002 "Hear the Beat"

D003 "The Little Painter"
Judge's Comments:  “The Little Painter” is an adorable portrait of a budding artist. Due to the strong drawing and painting skill put into the “body language” of the child, we can read so much into this painting; especially the pure joy of the paint, the color, the very act of painting that we often loose as we adult painters struggle in our own painting efforts.
