Remarks by the 2010 Judges:

I judge based on the artist’s feeling, imagination, use of color, and the ability to achieve this through technique and craftmanship. I do not encourage paintings that copy photographs of “pretty” pictures and I try to select works that convey the character and quality of pastel.
– Everett Raymond Kinstler
