Juried Member Show - Awards and Reception (Part Two) - the Winning Paintings!

After spending about seven hours on the blog the other day I decided to take a break from blogging yesterday. But here is the next post finally - photos of our winning artists with their paintings! The artwork was amazing and I can see why our judge or juror, Ann Manry Kenyon, had this to say about our show:
Oh the pain of it all - to try to choose between all these lovely pieces.There are those shimmering with color that beg "pick me, pick me", yet the next painting's composition is exquisite. Each piece allows me a tiny peek inside the artist's soul...Alas, having been given my orders to chose only eight pieces, I agonized. For really each of the 76 pieces had their own element of Beauty.
(note the number 76 is for all those entered in the show, including those juried out, not the number actually hung).

The next post in the series will show *all* of the paintings that were hung in our show, including better shots of the winning works! Meanwhile, here again are our winners, this time with their winning paintings. Again a big congratulations to ALL of them.
