Juror's Statement

Juror: Carol E. Maltby
Winner of last year's Best of Show Award

  Being a self taught artist, I have been drawing since I can remember. After starting with charcoal, pencil, pen and ink, I evolved into color. Using oil paints and then colored pencils, which is what I'm doing now. My subject matter is "whatever and whenever." If the subject talks to me, I'll draw it, trying to convey my feelings into the drawing. I work mostly on Strathmore plate bristol board. I've been working in colored pencil for more than 10 years now, enjoying every minute of it.

Carol's selections for the 20th Annual Member Show Awards:

Best of Show 
Scentsation by Cynthia Knox, CPSA

Cynthia's drawing took my eye with the black background and the vivid colors in the flowers. The picture just popped. Such close attention was paid to the details in the doily and reflections on the vase added to the illusion of the drawing. The flower interact with each other making it a pleasing arrangement. The light colored rose in the middle draw your attention to the middle and then expanding to the darker flowers surrounding it, making it a good composition.

First Place 
Gutenberg Bible 1583 by Allison Philpott

Allison has dawn a thoughtful picture. She has paid close attention to details, like the pages aged with time. The over all coloring of the drawing sets it back in time coherent with the subject matter. The composition is well put together. The positioning of the blue metal piece, connecting the Bible with the rest of the picture, and ties it all together nicely.

Second Place
Tangerine Reflections by Paco Martin

This drawing catches ones eye. The brightness of the tinfoil, which is well done, and the way it crinkles catching the reflections of the tangerines, even in the crinkles, this all makes for a pleasing composition.

Third Place
Last Train Home by Bonnie Sheckter

Bonnie's drawing is not one to be taken lightly. You can look at it and see more and more. Not only does it have strong composition, it also tells a story. You wonder what the man is thinking of and looking at. The reflections don't take away from the main point of interest, but add to it. The coloring adds to the feelings of the decision.
