"Reflections in Blue"

"Another large figure painting, "Reflections in Blue" by Suzanne Accetta, works differently on its viewers. The single figure is shown in a moment of transport, and the soft and nearly smoky image carries us along into this ephemeral moment."

Juror, Chris Leeper wrote;
"This painting works on many levels. Technically, it is practically flawless. It is beautifully designed with interesting positive/negative shapes and great movement. The use of color is strong. Notice the unusual but effective use of non-local color on the skin tones. Finally is the image itself. There is a sense of joy portrayed by the subject and sense of joy that the viewer feels that is generated by the artist and their investment in the subject. This is a memorable painting."
