“I am honored to have judged the Fantastic Florida exhibit. The task of being a juror is always a difficult one, as there is something to love in every work. The pieces that especially struck me were those that evoked a mood of Florida: whether by light, composition or color.
I hope that each and every artist who submitted their work will continue with their craft and keep growing as an artist. It is practice more than talent that makes great work, so never stop making.”
