Judge's Comments: The detail. This painting counters so many of the reasons I gave for choosing the other winners. It is packed to the gills with detail and feels very still and posed and cold. But what it does have is a fantastic feeling of structure and light. It is all about the stage lighting and the ornate costumes. My favorite parts being the upward cast shadows of the fan and mask. - Michael Orwick
