Judge's Comments: There are so many things which I love about this remarkably active painting. I love how David has conveyed the diverís dynamic movement, dramatically captured in mid-flight! The impeccably solid construction of the diverís anatomy, as well as the sumptuous flesh tones are simply masterful! The use of incredibly expressive lost and found edges make the figure seem to deliciously merge in and out of the background. The juxtaposition of flesh tones against the blue sky creates a radiant play of warm and cool colors. - Jennifer McChristian
