Judge's Comments: I absolutely love the abstract quality of this bold and compelling painting! A classic rendition of ‘less is more’. The interesting, geometrical flat shapes create an aesthetically pleasing, dynamic and powerful composition. The artist used varied paint application and manipulation to create marvelous texture and surface quality. William effectively leads the viewer to the focal point by surrounding the two listlessly lingering, colorful white boats with a large area of sumptuous dark colors. The artist clearly adds his own unique and psychologically engaging interpretation of this idyllic subject matter. There’s more than meets the eye in this evocative and beautiful painting! - Jennifer McChristian
