#16, Lynne Renzenberger FRESH CUT SAN JOSE, Acrylic Judge's Comment: "I walked around the show and kept returning to this composition - the power of the flowers draws one into the picture. The contrast between the flowers and the background is the lure but so is the play between violet and yellow."
