    Goodness, what wonderful work. I especially like Caroline Cortes (France) “Studded Landscape, too..the hot oranges against the slate grey, just gorgeous.

  2. Dominique Vermander

    J’étais à Chartres and it was marvelous.
    I hope I can participate in 2014.
    Good luck and greets
    Dominique

    what is an amateur-insider?

    • Nancie

      The literal translation is a little unfortunate, Lillian. My understanding is that this category is for artists who are in between amateur-someone quite new to the art form, and professional- those who are making a living as artists.

  5. Luis Laso Casas

    A good choice, I can see why Anne-Cecile Lopez was given such an award. The synergy between the media, tessellation, coloured mortars and substrate is very captivating and powerful.
