Judge's Comments: This is a show stopper. The subtle color captured my eye. As Charles Hawthorne says, “Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision-it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so.” This painting is a perfect example of this. This artist made these bails of hay something beautiful by his color and brushwork. It is a very serene and calming piece. It is a wonderful painting to look at. This is another example of elegant simplicity and saying so much with so little. He also, in the tradition of Monet, captured a light key of nature. - Camille Przewodek
