Judge's Comments: Everything about this painting works the beautiful design, subtle color, confident brushwork. An every day scene elevated to artwork by a skilled painter. Lovely use of thick vs thin paint and beautiful handling of edges. Mark's careful design keeps your eye moving throughout the painting and rewards the viewer with texture and color. Those moments of slate blue tucked in to the shadows in contrast to the brighter yellow on some of the downed trees works so well against all the other natural grays in the scene. Beautifully done! - Kathleen Dunphy
