  1. Good grief - I don't know how the judges did it - these are all just beautiful!! I can see what a difficult time they had choosing all the finalists for the show. How wonderful to see all of these online - it would be great to be able to go to the exhibit, but this is the next best thing!

  2. INcredible choices! the light and paint quality is just fantastic in every one!

  3. What a wonderful selection, thank you judges!

    I have so enjoyed looking at the amazing array of works entered for this FB Challenge.

    Congratulations to all the winners and 'judges' choices' - all so well deserved!
