Judge's Comments: This artist took on a subject that has been done so often that it is almost worn out. And then, he pulled it off in such a fresh way, proving that originality can be injected into any subject when the artist is willing to take a risk and develop a personal and individual approach. The figures are rendered in such a way that the viewer senses the artistís knowledge of the anatomy, but is not overwhelmed by it. Life, animation and expression are all there. Beautiful composition. Subtle, completely integrated palette. Impressive execution. Wonderful painting. - Joe Anna Arnett
