Judge's Comments: This sensitive portrait is skillfully rendered with a thought provoking and pensive mood. Great color play in the composition with the shot of red against the cooler( more neutral) foil. Great relationship of the large masses. Fine details and soft edges – contrast the title. We feel “strength” is conveyed by the age of figure and a sense of strong character defined by her life's work. - Randall Sexton
