Judge's Comments: I was drawn to this work by the subtle use of complimentary colors of the background in contrast to the model's coat. It is simply composed in a very shallow space and exhibits technical mastery of the medium, but it goes further. I was so captivated by the beauty of the work that I initially missed the fact that the young woman is holding a hatchet. I laughed. This detail totally changed my thinking about the piece. What is she about to do? - Michael Godfrey
