Best in Show

Hula Hoops~a flying dream viewing people from  above 
Watercolor Painting 
Juror Brian Parks:
It is always a challenge to select a “best of show” from a group of such strong varied pieces.  Hula Hoops caught my attention from a distance and then kept it the closer I got.  Visually Hula Hoops is a splendid assortment of organic and geometric shapes dancing and intermingled together with very pleasing balance.  The energetic rings of the hula hoops help bridge to subtle rectangles with the bodies hula hooping.  The odd point of view adds excitement by giving the hoops the full attention by displaying them all as near perfect circles.  Technically I am marveled at the layers and masking that the artist implemented.  The colors are not overpowering or too bright.  While I am impressed with all the technical aspects displayed, I found myself going back to this painting over and over just to look at it and enjoy it!
