Judge's Comments: I love the brush work in this portrait, plus the subtle and sensitive value changes in the half tones. A lot of portraits look labored; this painting shows that with patience and careful study putting the right brush stroke in the right place and not smoothing every thing out creates a wonderful life study. - Susan Lyon
