Juror’s Statement
Keiko Tanabe

I am deeply grateful and honored to have been asked to judge for this year’s Watercolor Ohio 2021.

It was a treat to look at all the submissions and I was amazed at a variety in chosen subject matters, concepts and expressions. I carefully viewed all the paintings several times to make selections. I looked speci cally at how strong a composition is and how e ectively all the elements of art are blended. Technical pro ciency, originality and clarity of vision were also important criteria.

I would like to congratulate the selected artists whose creative achievement stood out among many. I would also like to remind the artists who are not in the show this year that soon it will be your turn, so please keep painting because each artwork deserves being shared and enjoyed by all.
