    I liked the Pain in the eye but the Kitten appealed to my emotions on cuteness.

    Well done to the winners and the other worthy participants.

    Hello Kim,

    It's a tough contest to judge and a lot depends on what appeals to the voters.

    Congratulations to the winners and congratulations to you Kim. The success of this contest was due in very large part to your initiative and enthusiasm to generously promote the artists and provide an alternative venue for their creations.

    This continuing commitment of yours resonates the genuineness of your character and the depth of your sincerity; as well as your passion for art and love of artists. :-) --Durano, done!

    Pain in the Eye is beautiful!!! The name or the caption is perfectly suited to the work. I hope you can share with us the media used or any painting technique used by the artist in creating this; of course, with the permission of the artist.
