Judge's Comments: I find this painting incredibly exciting. The light on the cactus is electrified, and this captures how the sun can illuminate the desert in ways that are sometimes unbelievable. The artist moves the viewer through this painting by effectively balancing the articulation and the suggestion of textural detail, as well as an overall awareness of how to use contrast and edge qualities to create space. What a truly inspired painting! - Abbey Ryan
