What makes these paintings stand out and merit an award?

According to Juror Tara Sweeney, creative and artist excellence must show outstanding quality with respect to composition, technique and originality of expression. To achieve these things means practice (paint, paint, paint), seek feedback from mentors, teachers and others in order to improve, care enough about your work to try, fail and try again and know why you paint. Quoting Tara, “Paint first for your own pleasure and satisfaction” NOT for a particular viewer or juror. And perhaps the most important aspect of all–enjoy painting any way and every way that you can. Play is a powerful catalyst for releasing those “AHA!” ideas waiting inside of you.
