(Note: This final round is being voted on by our four in-house judges, but comments are always welcome.)Name: Katie Original Entry "# 16 - Katie's Walls of Fame" Location: Montclair, NJ Website: Stopkatie.com All Western Entries: Link Here All Eastern Entries: link Here Who was your favorite contestant from the contest?: Although all the work in Lee's apartment stood out, I definitely enjoyed "Big Dog" the most. A product of attending art school is being taught that dog or baby paintings are the most kitschy idea ever, yet this dog painting is great. I wouldn't mind having it hung up in my own apartment (with that exact wall color.) I'm a little disappointed he didn't make the final round. What would you change if money was no object?: I lived in a dorm for the last three years so the first thing I wanted to do when I moved to an apartment was paint the walls as many colors as I could: two pink walls, an orange room and a green room.
I only moved into my apartment last April and I already want to move to another; partly for an extra room to do my prints and paintings in, and partly to pick new wall colors and play around with patterns (next apartment I'm screen printing wallpaper patterns right to the wall.) So were money not an issue I'd move to a new place and start again. But those 36 paintings will be hung right back up.
