Cyril Mazansky MPSA, BPSA, of Newton Center MA won for the second time this year with his First Place Star Color. Geisha Mask. Not only that, he won First Place Star Mono with Happy Cement Worker.
This month’s judge, Alex Lane, tells us "I felt that there were a couple of close entries but this is the one that stood out from the rest. It is an outstanding portrait. It has good color and composition and is very sharp. The ‘mask’ has brightly colored fine details against a white background, and the ‘face’ is surrounded by black which makes it stand out. The red umbrella over the shoulder frames the entire face. It has a good background and has that quality that grabs your attention and makes you look at it again. Well done!"
