You be the judge

I received a note recently that New American Paintings, a juried painting publication produced annually by Steven Zevitas, has just introduced the New American Paintings Annual Prize. The Prize includes two components: a cash prize of $1,000 awarded to one artist selected from the artists featured in the publication by a panel of curators, and a $500 (gift crertificate) Readers' Choice Award.  Zevitas has asked me to invite Two Coats readers to participate by taking a look at the twelve finalists and voting for your favorite. The voting deadline is January 7, and the winner will be announced on January 17.

Here are the finalists:

Matthew Bourbon, "For Your Own Good,"acrylic on canvas, 72 x 72"
