Judge's Comments: Tough subject matter. Of all the landscapes I judged I believe this was one is the toughest paintings to pull off. This Artist has showed so many planes changed through temperature change. So many paintings I judged in this competition I would like to see in real life. This is one of them. I would like to see all the temperature variations while holding on to the interesting value pattern. And are you kidding me…What a design. You come in the painting on the lower left rock then you walk up the steps across the top and the waterfall takes you back to a rock to step you back into this painting. This painting is not going to let you leave. - John Burton
