Judge's Comments: Every element of this painting is used to lead you into the subject and the narrative that is happening there. I particularly like the abstract designs of the cobble stones in the foreground and how they lead your eye up to the main subject. It captures a moment of stillness and at the same time a feeling of transitory movement with the choice to place within the painting the bird in flight. The subtle greys in the surrounding architectural elements coupled with the more saturated color in the young girl tell a story to me of the old and the new and how the two come together. - Michelle Dunaway
