Judge's Comments: Juicy paint, atmosphere, and mood...Itís enough to make a painter drool! Wish I could see this in person to see the paint surface- looks thick and substantial. Brrrrr itís cold Ė we sense the two are standing close just to stay warm. Lotís of subtlety happening around the big, bold and beautiful shapes of the horses: shadows in the snow, suggested shapes in the distance, subtle color shifts in the grays, wetness. Awesome. - Randall Sexton
