Here are some of the comments the judges madeabout their decisions:

Robin's Entry: "Color and composition is just fabulous."
"It's really beautiful. It is very clever the way the artist turned the clock into a flying creature but still kept it very much a clock. I like the effect of the OPALS blending on the front of the clock. I can relate to the saying because when I work on art, I feel that time is flying."
Debbie Warren's Entry: "It has the "Wow" factor. I love the stripped effect with the Fantasy Film. I'd like to know how that was done. Then drizzling the OPALS onto it gave it nice texture. The embellishments are really pretty."
"The use of the tangled poured OPALS like that it gives it texture and contrast. I like that the number dots light up too and of course the strip layered Fantasy Film background would be so shimmery and gorgeous in real life. Its very creative and your eye wanders all over it."
Adrienne's Entry: "It's beautiful in its simplicity, and what's not to love about the female form? It looks like you could hang this piece on a wall or set it on a table top or mantle. The colors are appealing and the texture is just enough. I would be touching this piece if it was in front of me. Luscious, creamy, molten."
"It has luscious textures all over it and the complementary colors of the purple and gold give it an elegance. The marbled OPALS Krafty Lady mold part is beautiful. The smoother areas of the piece tone it down and make it less busy. A beautiful piece of art."
