February 2012 Best of Show
Award Sponsor: RayMar Art
Judge: Michelle Dunaway

Blue Sky and Figure by David Shevlino
19 x 17, oil painting

Judge's Comments: This painting really captivated me the moment I saw it. The artist so eloquently captured, through a conservation of brushwork , the sense of suspended movement ; the stillness of the diver within that moment in mid air. The solid anatomical structure juxtaposed with the intuitive loose brushwork told the story in a beautiful and powerful way. I felt my breath catch as I saw this image because of it's simplicity and power , the movement and stillness conveyed simultaneously. – Michelle Dunaway
