December 2010 Finalist

Award Sponsor: Raymar Art
Judge: Susan Lyon

"Roses in Pilsner" by Tony Pro
24" x 12" Oil

Judge's Comments: This painting personifies elegance to me. I love the strong composition and the simple shapes. To me flowers are super hard to convey and not over work. You can tell this artist squinted and studied the way the stems and leaves caught the light in the vase. It's a good lesson to see how the artist didn't overwhelm the viewer with too many details. – Susan Lyon
