2015 CWS Online Show Awards

1st Place
Lorraine Watry, Fun and Games, $750

Fun and Games
"Well designed and love the content. We all played this game as a kid and it brings back my Wheeler Dealer Memories."

2nd Place
Marcio Correa, Mountain Town Best Buddies, $450

Mountain Town Best Buddies
"Landscape with a story. Loose enough to look spontaneous, precise enough to place the characters in their proper space and perspective."

3rd Place
Joanie Bauer Hupp, Lemongrass, $500

"Very graphic representation of Lemon Grass with a deliberately designed picture space. A creative presentation that is almost print like."

Merit Award
Diane Fechenbach, October Patterns, $500

October Patterns
"Love the complements of red orange/orange with the blue. Placing those two colors together make this painting really Pop."

Merit Award
Janice Goldblatt, Free Fall, NFS

Free Fall
"An abstraction that reminds me of fire or waving tress in the fall. A creative path that begs to be explored."

Merit Award
Deborah Corley, Baby Bunting, NFS

Baby Bunting
"A child with a child. Sensitively painted and allows the viewer to make the story line."
