Judge's Comments: Compositionally brilliant! I especially love the repetition of the shape of the boat in the cool black line of the distant dock, and the play of warm and cool reflections in relation to the boats. The depiction of the water is exceptional one can almost feel its gentle motion lapping at the boats. With beautifully harmonized color and luscious paint quality, this artist perfectly captures a quiet moment. - Kate Palmer
