Judge's Comments: Typifying an iconic Western landscape, this handsome painting of an expansive open vista has a wonderful sense of aerial perspective and gorgeous light. The composition, although simple, is very strong in design, carrying a powerful visual impact. The lofty vantage point and high horizon gives the viewer the illusion of looking down at the valley whilst perched on a towering mountain ridge. Using a limited palette and warm/cool combinations the artist has managed to create luscious and vibrant colors that dazzle and sing! - Jennifer McChristian
