Judge's Comments: I love the immediacy and directness of the execution. This economically painted profile is characterized by rich color, hard edges, and strong value contrasts. The unfinished and abstract quality of the background adds interest to this energetically painted study. I also like cool relief provided by the blue shirt. Strong color, strong values, strong edges... strong painting! - Robert Lemler
