Judge's Comments: This is a lot of confidence and skill in this painting. I love how each color is bright and full of pigment. Nothing comes off as muddy or dull. I also enjoy the way he looses and keeps his edges. This with color and composition lets the viewer sink into the painting and not get stuck on any one area for too long. Subjects guide and melt you into all zones. He also employes good separation of Lights and Darks. - Amery Bohling
