It was obvious from the first run-through that I was going to have to be merciless in my selection process if I was to pare this exhibit down to one third of the entries. If you were not accepted in this time around, take heart, the completion was stiff and for the most part, it was just small elements that tipped the balance one way or the other. When it comes to awards, there are never enough and again I had to be ruthless and even then, had to revisit my selections several times over two days to finally pare them down. The first place award was chosen on the first run though; it was that outstanding. Most of the others were the same. For me, award winning paintings are not as much about technique; it is a given that that part of the process is taken care of in making it into the competition. Awards to me are about engagement, which you can see by my comments, makes them much more personal than professional choices.
