Here are the bios of the judges.
"In reviewing my life I realized the time passed has helped me become the artist I am today. My artistic life has gone full circle, from a traditional realist I've evolved into what I call a representational abstract artist."
Nella Lush paints primarily in oils, sometimes in Acrylics and encaustics. She prefers using large format canvas where she "can truly lose herself". Nella is an artist member of the National Association of Women Artists, NYC (NAWA), the Rockport Art Association, North Shore Art Association, Cambridge Art Association, Newburyport Art Association, the Arts League of Lowell, and the Allied Artists of America, NYC, NY She serves as President of the Andover's Artists Guild.
Nella's art is represented by John Raimondi's Gallery, Rockport, MA. Her art is part of private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canad, Italy, France, Spain, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
"Painting for me is exciting and I'm thankful for all the pleasure it has given, including visually sharing my impressions with others. I mostly paint outdoors or what is popularly known as "plein-air painting" because experiencing nature and the challenge of capturing the effect of light in paint is so rewarding."
A native New Englander with over 30 years studying fine art and painting in oils, pastel, and watercolor, Larry is proficient in painting landscapes, portraits, and still life. His experience in outdoor painting has fine tuned his ability to paint nature's colorful patterns and subtleties of light on form.
Larry teaches representational oil painting during the winter months in Florida and conducts year round workshops in both NE and FL. His demonstrations offer entertainment and insights into the principles of composition and design that he utilizes when he juries art shows and conducts painting critiques. He received his formal training a the Cape Cod School of Art, Montserrat College of Art, and the DeCordova Museum of Art.
Larry shares his life and passion for art with his wife Judy. They enjoy the opportunities of a common interest and share painting, teaching and critiquing art together. They have a keen interest in the evolution of painters who continue to inspire them, such as Sorolla, Zorn, Bongart, Fechin and contemporary painters who were influenced by the French and the Russian Impressionists.
