  • Thank you all for sharing your beautiful works! Everything is so well done it makes it hard to pick three.
  • Thank you - pieces are beautiful ... I love the soft and quiet of the white and gray!

  • Nice use of topic colors!
  • All the entries as usual are gorgeous, it gets harder and harder to pick a favorite!
  • I love B&W color combination, it's my favorite. It's been so difficult to choose only 3 pieces.... I love 8!!
  • All of the entries were great. The clay landscape on canvas especially caught my attention because it was like a painting on canvas. I love to paint. Good job everyone!
  • This vote was very hard for me as I felt they all deserved it. This is one that I think they all thought was challenging, so I feel each one is a winner in my book. Awesome work Ladies!
  • Had to include Jackie's bottle, since I love it, it's on my mantle and I can see all the subtle value variations up-close ;)
  • Dragon is adorable!
  • Tough choice! Beautiful items.
