Judge Billyo O’Donnell studied the work of the 27 artists juried into the Paint Annapolis event recently and picked his winners. 
The artists had one day in which to find a painting spot somewhere in Anne Arundel County. Then on the next, they concentrated on work within Annapolis city limits. A nocturne competition was conducted separately in the entertainment district one night. Paint Annapolis is also noted for its Dueling Brushes competition, in which artists go head to head to win prizes.
David Lussier won First Place in the overall awards, with Lynn Mehta taking Second and Hai-Ou Hou winning Third. In the Nocturne competition, David Diaz won First Place, Meg Nottingham Walsh won Second Place, and Karen Scannell won Third Place.
Honorable Mention awards went to Rick Csali, Gary Pendleton, and Michael Kotarba. Lee Boynton won the Anne Arundel County Award, Jill Peckelun won the A&E District Award, and Peter Emerson won the Naval Academy Award.
The Dueling Brushes competition was won by David Lussier, with Tim Kelly placing Second, Karen Scannell placing Third, and the People’s Choice award going to Joseph Palmiero.
The general public was invited to compete separately in the Nocturne competition; the winners were Nina Ellsworth (First Place), Laurie Hewitt (Second Place), and Murray Taylor (Third Place).
