Here's what has come up recently, from various artists who have jurying experience, including Carrie Burns Brown, Judy Morris, and Linda Baker. These notes comprise observations, personal preferences, and general guidelines:
- Don't use Pink.
- Don't bother entering Flower paintings.
Going on . . .
- Paintings with color chords dominated by blues and oranges are massively over represented in shows.
- Jurors have 3 seconds to choose most paintings: they must be able to read it and get it's reason for existing fast. So subtleties are not useful.
