Every judge has their own style when judging a show.  Tom looked for nuances in value and subtle changes in the shadow areas of the painting when he judged.  He challenged us all to avoid being predictable with respect to the horizon or putting the subject in the center of the painting.  Overall he was impressed with the quality of paintings across all skill levels.

This year we have two members that won for both of their paintings.  Tom was not aware of the artist’s name as he judged because we had the names covered.  In addition, we had fewer entries this year, which exasperated this scenario.  Because some members expressed concern over the same individual winning twice, we’ll take these concerns into account when we plan next year’s show.
