Judge's Comments: Kim has a unique ability to show depth in a painting while also creating drama the skies and the land. The colors and shapes of the clouds provides that moment of transcendence that is the difference between a emotional interpretation of a place and merely a re-creation of a locale. I also love the abstract leanings of the piece and the way the actual paint is not hidden. I want to be able to see the artist's hand at work and that is all visible here. The way the rain fall is literally dripping from the clouds is absolutely perfect--simple, natural and true. beautiful - Joshua Rose
