Best in Show!

After a long wait, Faerie Chronicles is proud to present the Best in Show for the "Orange" artshow! - Vanessa Petri and her "Goddess of Twilight"!

Congratulations Vanessa! Her prize is a 13x19 giclee print of "Goddess of Twilight"!

"First of all it was not easy to come to a decision the quality of the creative and imaginative work of the chosen artists is getting better and better. In the final short listing my decisions were based on believability and realistic quality and color combinations to achieve this, the Vanessa Petrie and Andy Duroe images both capture a mystic quality of believable origination in color and proportion. My accolade however goes to Vanessa for her 'Goddess of Twilight' the image is quite simply spellbinding as it glides full of depth of dark powerful mystery, beautifully conceived and executed." - David Riche
