Judges

J O H N  T R AY N O R

John C. Traynor combines the 19th century element of atmosphere with the realistic, yet soft rendering of color and light reminiscent of the Dutch Masters to create his own distinctive style.

John studied painting with Frank Mason at the Art Students League of New York. In his still lifes and landscapes John selectively uses color and value to impart a feeling of distance, and a progression of light.

Mr. Traynor is the recipient of over two hundred awards of merit for his art, including the Grumbacher Gold and Silver Medals, the Copley Society’s Robb Sagendorph Award and the Hudson Valley Art Association’s Frank Dumond Memorial Award for best light and atmospheric effect in a painting

A full time artist since 1978, Steve is known for his exciting and colorful landscapes, ranging from coastal New England to Europe and the Caribbean. An intense feeling of light is apparent in all his work, as well as a strong sense of design.

A signature member of the American Watercolor Society, and longtime member of the New Jersey Watercolor Society, Steve has won numerous awards for his work including awards from the NJWS, Salmagundi Club, Garden State Watercolor Society, American Artists Professional League, and many local and regional art shows.
