First Place - Janet Palmer Swirling Waters

Two works share this year's First Place Award. Our juror, Jenine Culligan found it impossible to choose between them, thus the shared 1st Place:


Janet Palmer – Swirling Waters

"This work is small, but has a vast feel.  One can almost sense the pull of the tide. The slightly elevated perspective puts the viewer on the rocks overlooking the ocean. Very nice use of the paper showing through – expertly rendered. It reminds of  19th century seascapes at their best, especially William Trost Richards."~ Jenine Culligan, Juror

"This is another painting that photography just does not do justice to. It is an outstanding piece of work, that although small gives a feeling of space. It does not feel small!" ~ Susan Tschantz, Renaissance Art Gallery artist.
