December 2010 Best in Show

Award Sponsor: Raymar Art
Judge: Susan Lyon

Bacchante by Dieul Marina
42 x 42 Oil

Judge's Comments: The reason I choose this painting for the best of show is that it is not only technically excellent, but the artist's imagination is captivating. This painting goes to the next level of art; after learning the basics of drawing, value, color, and edges, you must make the piece unique. The balance of real and fantasy keeps me looking at it again and again. – Susan Lyon
