Judge's Comments: Ned's drawing skills show through in this confident portrait. The painting feels fresh and direct. You can sense the warmth coming off Valentina's skin in contrast to the cold day. Ned's indication of buildings and trees in the snowy background gives just the right amount of information to create a setting without taking away from the impact of the portrait. Beautiful touches of greens and pinks to add interest to the sky. A well-constructed and thoughtfully designed painting. - Kathleen Dunphy
