First time judge, Carol Marine, picked some stellar paintings. Way to go and thank you Carol! Check out the August Finalists. There is a great variety of subject matter and painting styles to inspire you. Carol's critiques of these paintings will be posted near the end of the month. We apologize for the delay as Clint Watson, our website manager, is currently out enjoying Europe (we are quite jealous) and will post them at the end of the month when he returns.
