The votes are in! The “editor’s choice” and the winner of a set of Neopastel 24 ($55) and a set of Neopastel 48 ($110) is Anne Van Blarcom Kurowski of Wilmington, NC, with her painting, Metropolitan. The artist remarks of the process of rising to Lynn Goldstein’s challenge to approach a subject from a new perspective, “This subject, a museum visitor, was seen from the balcony at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The repetition of lines and angles is what attracted my attention. The texture of the terrazzo floor was created by scraping pastel sticks of different colors and rolling the particles down with a brayer.” Congratulations to Kurowski and our runners up, Aili Kurtis and Dawn E. Miller, whose paintings (The White Leaf and Saturday Afternoon) are pictured below.
