First, I want to thank Paige for asking me to guest judge this week.
She is the most inspiring, insightful person who always encourages others
to be their best creative selves.
I am a better artist because of her and am so grateful to know her.
Okay, this was so hard for me.
Fundamentally, I believe that everyone is a winner simply because
they created something and took the brave and beautiful steps
to make their art known to the world.
So choosing only eleven made my heart heavy.
I think many of the entries this week showed strong concepts and artistic merit
far beyond traditional portraiture. Bravo everyone!
The image I selected for the feature image is from Lesley-Anne Perry.
It spoke to me on so many levels.
The warm tones of the sunflare, the dizzying motion-blur, the double exposure
and the story-telling strength of this image blew me away.
I could really relate to it on all levels, as an artist, a woman and a mother.
And, it was a selfie! That is not easy to do.
Together the top 11 images should be in a fine art exhibit, they are all that strong. Congratulations to all.

What a pleasure to have Juli Isola with us this week!
I always get the feeling that Juli doesn't understand just how truly talented she is.
So I just want to go on record having said:
you are sweet, humble, kind, beautiful and immensely talented Juli!
Thanks for being here and for always supporting me!!
