My take by David Waddell

I could not really be surprised at the choice of grand prize for this competition. They went with the safe choice. The jurors chose an artist who captured realistic portraits through watercolor. They were very traditional pieces. Overall, Davis' pieces all looked pretty much the same.

I think it was a huge achievement for Amy Misurelli Sorensen's work to be included in a Water Media on Paper show as it was displayed in a conservative locale. Her work is exciting, colorful, crisp and SEXUAL. As you enter the gallery, her clean and professioanlly framed work is the first to be seen. It was as if they were practically handing her the $4,000 prize and yet, they did not.
