Judge's Comments: What difficult subject matter and John handled it so well. Wonderful observation on the upper branches of the tree, and a lively pattern of the sky coming through those branches without getting too distracting. You can feel the heat on the summer day. The textural quality of the paint makes the surface feel even more dimensional. The cows are just the right touch to add scale. A beautiful homage to a tree. - Kathleen Dunphy
