Juror's Comments:

Autumn is a unique time of year and I can tell that there was no loss of inspiration. What I found interesting was the vigorous use of color by our participants. Each seemed to recognize that strong color is something you need not shy away from. It was interesting to note that some artists were using watercolor with collage and cut paper.

The difficult task of a single juror is to not let your notions of composition or subject matter dictate a choice. I wish I could have passed out more ribbons for those adventurous souls who can tackle the riotous colors of an autumn scene. Please keep the brushes moving and the camera shutters clicking!
