Judge's Comments: This painting is the complete package! The drawing, design, values, color temperature, and edge treatment are all right on the money. The modelís left foot extending beyond the picture plane adds to the sense of veracity. The artist has taken a page from the Impressionists who cropped some images to show that the scene continued past the frame. This piece must have been done from life; it reads as light and air, not mere paint! - William Schneider
