The 2015 BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Artisan Series is finally in the home stretch. No longer accepting submissions, it’s time to vote for the winner, and with such a competition, you can imagine the top runners will bring their A-game when it comes to their creative work, so be sure to choose wisely and carefully.

While last year’s grand prize went to Kristine Mays for her extraordinary wirework, one of the two runners-up brought artistic heat from a more two-dimensional variety in the form of Michael Savoie from Dallas, Texas. His dream-turned-reality of painting exhibits a true passion and love for the art, where he would take the “everyday person and elevate them to superstar-level on canvas” — a humble way of idolizing commonplace beauty. Savoie, with an attempt towards judging the general public by controversially covering the eyes of his subjects, obviously struck a chord with his fans, standing as a finalist of three towards winning the competition.

Voting is now open, so be sure to check out the other finalists in the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Artisan Series and choose your favorite from now till November 9.
